image for Reshuffled Week Puts End To Tuesday Blues
TGI Tuesday?

The Home Office has announced plans to reshuffle the week in a bid to do away with the 'Tuesday Blues.'

Sources close to Prime Minister David Cameron say the plans are a pet project, part of his design to creat the 'Big Society' with a happier population.

A spokeswoman said the changes would initially be limited so their effects could be gauged.

"Everyone knows that Tuesday is the most boring day of the week," she said: "It's so far from the weekend, with no prospect of release from work in sight.

"The ennui this engenders in the population has a deleterious effect - making people gloomy and damaging productivity.

"So, we are moving Tuesday to between Friday and Saturday. The dullest day will therefore have the prospect of the weekend at the end of it. This is bound to cheer people up.

"If the change has the desired effect, other proposals include moving the very popular Thursday to between Sunday and Monday, thereby diminishing the shock of returning to work after the weekend."

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