image for Chilean Miners Told To "Get Back To Work, And Stop Slacking!"
What's this at the bottom of the bed?

The 33 miners trapped for nine weeks in a mine in Chile, faced cameras for the first time since their rescue yesterday, and revealed that their boss has told them to have the rest of the day off, before reporting back for work tomorrow at 5am.

Looking jaded and slightly thinner than when they entered the mine on August 5th, the men reluctantly collected their meagre wages, and trooped dejectedly off home, to prepare for some more hard graft in the morning.

Mining boss, Donald Corleone, told us:

"Production has ground to a halt since these time-wasting slackers have been resting down there, now it's time they got back to work and made me rich again!"

He added:

"I told them to get back to work and stop loafing about, then I made them an offer they couldn't refuse!"

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