An artfully lit pint, somewhere in a studio a few years ago.

In a pub, today, eight people sat around a table discussing the weather. Dave and Pat both agreed that it was far too warm, and they couldn't wait for autumn to begin. Peggy, at 73, the oldest of the group, said that she remembered the summer of 1976 as being warmer.

Darren and Gary both said that it had nothing to do with climate change, and was not at all man-made, and that the left-leaners in the country had a lot to learn.

After buying a second round at the Wet Ferret, Chutney on the Fritz's cheapest hostelry, Dave and Darren took it outside, much to the delight of the pub's customers, who were beginning to get bored of watching Peaky Blinders on the TV, and longed for some real-life violence.

They made more progress than the G7 summit though.

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