image for Death Threat Would Never Have Been Carried Out, Says Man Who Sent Himself A Death Threat
Dear me - I'll kill you!

A man who sent himself a death threat has told police he never meant to carry it out.

The man, Myke Himself, 55, said that the threat was just a prank.

Himself said he sent the death threat to himself "as a laugh", and that it was not meant to be taken seriously, but this bit of fun backfired when he told an acquaintance in a pub about it. The acquaintance immediately contacted the filth.

"I was only joking, you know, pulling my own leg," he said. "Just a practical joke. I meant myself no harm."

But the police didn't exactly see the funny side of this practical joke. Inspector Albert Plod of Plodsville filth, said:

"The filth take a dim view of death threats, even if they are not serious ones. It doesn't take much for a 'threat' to escalate, and turn into cold, hard actions, and then we're looking at a murder, or, in this case, a suicide."

Himself, suitably chastised by the policeman's sober reasoning, said:

"Anybody who knows me, knows that I haven't the nerve to carry out a death threat, especially one against myself. I was just having me on."

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