An artists impression of Kenny in 25 years.

A six year old boy genius has sensationally found a cure for hunger and starvation throughout the world.

Kenny Fringe, 6, has been hailed as the next Einstein by people who make predictions about things like that. He has already taken his GCSE's and is currently in his second year of A-Levels at Crumbworth Secondary Modern.

He topped the Board of Education's league tables in all major subjects, including English, Maths and Home Economics in 2009, a mere month after his sixth birthday.

The 'Eureka' moment happened on Tuesday, shortly after Neighbours, and during a news item on starvation in the third world.

Doreen Fringe, Kenny's mum, told us "he was playing with a slice of jam sponge that Nana had made, when he looked up and said 'Let them eat cake', I just couldn't believe it!"

The local Womens Institute swooped into action and have already baked over 15,000 sponge cakes in nine hours.

The army and RAF have been put on standby to transport the baked jammy delights to the four corners of the world.

Colonel B P Hunter-Smart said in a huffy, shouty tone "we fully support this aid giving exercise, and wish to congratulate young Kenneth on his insight and foresight into this deep rooted problem!"

He then marched off to bark orders at new recruits.

Kenny was whisked off by his mother to clean his face and hands, the three pints of spit on handkerchief that she had already applied, not being nearly enough.

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