A Calendar Yesterday

Opponents of the change from the Julian to Gregorian calendar are to posthumously get their eleven missing days back Gordon Brown has announced.

The switch from the Julian to the Gregorian meant that in 1752, eleven days from the 2nd to the 14th September never happened. Protests were held on the streets of London with people complaining that they had had their lives cut short. Others claimed that the loss of the days were playing havoc with their bowels.

A spokesman for the government said 'If Blair can apologise for the slave trade then Gordon can do this although really it makes bugger all difference since the original protesters are now dead'

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