image for Controversial Laurel And Hardy Statue Unveiled
Ken Dodd's Dad's Dead Dog

Ulverston, Cumbria, UK - A controversial statue depicting comedy legends Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy was unveiled today in somewhat volatile circumstances in the late Stan Laurel's home town of Ulverston, Cumbria, near some lakes.

Among the unveilers was Ken Dodd, whose dad's dog's dead.

Although not everybody was bowled over by the new statue. An American observer named Percival Pissgums, accompanied by a scurvy crew and a parrot which spouted obscenities claimed:

"This statue should be for me. And our kid. We used to be conjoined twins before we were separated into Laurel and Hardy. We should have been portrayed as conjoined twins. When we were happiest."

At which point a police officer gave the protester a backhander, before hitting him on the leg with a baton. At which point a second police officer hit him in the head with a riot shield.

Thankfully, a third police officer refrained from barging into him and knocking him to the ground. Which could have had potentially fatal consequences.

More as we get it.

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