image for Heron Sanctuary Runs Up Huge Bill
A Heron

A Heron sanctuary in Somerset has run up a huge bill.

"It was the bosses idea," said a worker there, Mrs Margarine Idiot."She said 'Let's make a huge papier mache bill and run up it, just like we did when we were kids', and so we did. Twice. "

The sanctuary opened in 1932 and did not receive it's first Heron Until 1971. "Well, they're quite healthy around here," explained a lady at the time who was just passing the sanctuary and had nothing to do with it whatsoever, even though she owned an eighty percent share in the place.

We tried asking a Heron about the whole situation but at the last minute we realised they couldn't talk so it would have been a futile exercise.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
