The Magic Roundabout's helpful road signage on the Northernmost Tangential Parabolic Curve.

Police in Swindon are bracing themselves as a mass 37th Birthday celebration of the town's infamous Magic roundabout is threatened!

This festival has been inspired by the recent celebrations in London of a Zebra Crossing in NW8.

Navigating the hated road junction is taught to school children in Swindon from an early age so they can escape its orbit and get past trapped tourists in motorhomes or towing caravans trying to find the Cotswolds.

Expatriate Swindoner's or "Swine" as they're known locally are set to converge on the roundabout which resembles a small galaxy with planets or mini roundabouts orbiting it interspersed with lost motorists trying to figure out how to get round it!

Lying silently, like a giant concrete crocodile waiting to bewilder and trap unwary travellers, it will forever remain as testament to local Government folly back in that vintage year for bad planning.....1972!

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