Daily Mail writers try to cause another panic in the strike

Youtube was the latest social tool to crash this weekend, causing mass strikes and worries that nobody will ever recover.

After a mediation between the public and Mark whathisface from Facebook, a mass strike was avoided as Mark promised he'd "get rid of stupid Facebook groups such as 'Join this group if you like donkeys'." Contented, it was thought nothing could cause the general public to strike.

Until Youtube crashed.

The response? Millions of people fetched their pickets and swarmed down to London to protest. We bumped into a protestor, Mr. Arthur Potts, as he was yelling into a megaphone.

"Tube strikes are wrong. I was watching Alexandra Burke's video for the seventeenth time when it crashed!"

When we asked whether that was surely a blessing from God, Mr. Potts tried to hit us with his picket signs.

The 24 hour strike is expected to continue for, well, 24 hours. Promises must be kept, with people hoping that YouTube will never crash again.

Well, Tony Blair made those kind of promises...
