The Beverly Hillbillies is getting a reboot and it will be filmed in Camborne, Cornwall.
The comedy classic TV show about a redneck family who strike it rich and move to Beverly Hills has been going since the 1950’s.
The show will have a similar story line, but will match the Cornish culture, writer Bob Billy said “The show will be renamed the Camborne Hillbillies and will be about a family who strike it rich after finding a large deposit of tin in their back garden. They then sell the tin and move to Penponds in Camborne. It will be amazing”
Filming will start next month at the Wagoners pub opposite Iceland.
The classic TV show Lassie is getting a reboot and people are asking for Lassie to be played by a cat instead of a dog.
Lassie is a TV show about a female Rough Collie dog who every episode goes on an adventure helping people in distress.
The show began in the 1940’s, Lassie fan, Max Doberman, said “I have watched every episode of Lassie, I even named my dog Lassie, but times change and in this day and age, I think it’s only fair that Lassie gets played by a cat and not a dog!”
Not everyone is happy, when the news was posted on twitter, there was a backlash when 3 people commented on the tweet, one person wrote “This is getting beyond a joke!”
It’s not sure whether Lassie will be played by a cat, we will find out in the new year.
The government issued a warning today, refraining anyone dressing as Santa, not to use the term, “Ho ho ho” in case it caused offence.
Chief whip, Harry Balsak made the announcement on national news this morning, he said “With the current climate, we are asking anyone dressing as Santa, not to say “Ho ho ho” as this could be taken the wrong way, as someone might think you are referring to prostitution. Instead, we’re asking Santas to say, “hi hi hi” as this will be more family appropriate!”
After the announcement, people went online to voice their concerns, William Williams posted to Facebook, “First Kleenex remove mansize from their tissues, now people aren’t allowed to say “Ho ho ho” where will it end?”
The UK was hit with another EU blow today, after Santa Claus announced that he may not be able to deliver to Britain after Brexit.
In an interview with Noel Edmunds, on the Swap Shop, he said “After Brexit, I’m not sure whether I can deliver to the United Kingdom. It all depends on the trade deal that is being written up. It’s a shame really, as the UK has enough to be miserable about as it is: always raining, no snow and having to watch Piers Morgan on This Morning. I mean, it’s pretty dismal in the UK already, but who know’s what will happen in the next few weeks, we’ll just have to wait and see!”
Santa told us to not worry, he added “This Christmas will not be effected, so don’t forget to leave your beer and pies out, because this year, I’ll definitely be squeezing my fat ass down your chimney.”
Mobile phone provider o2 made an apology today after it ran out of credit, leaving millions of people without a mobile phone signal.
Customer, Neil Young was furious with the apology, he said “The cheeky buggers “text” everyone to say sorry, but nobody can read it, because our phones don’t work. I wan’t compensation!”
Head of o2, Barry Big Balls sent Cornish News the text, luckily we use Vodafone, he said ” o2 would like to apologise for the balls up, we run out of credit and don’t get paid until next Friday, so we won’t be able to get it on until we get paid! I’ve been using the free wifi in Mc. Donald’s, it’s a bit slow, but it’s better than nothing!”
A family in Cornwall were ordered to take down their Christmas decorations today after the council said “It wasn’t festive.”
The Stringer family in Camborne Cornwall decorated the roof of their house with the word “mush” which is a slang word used in Cornwall meaning man, or friend. After a neighbour reported the family, the council sent them a letter asking them to take down the lights as the word “mush” wasn’t very festive.
Steven Stringer who put up the lights said, “We thought we’d put up decorations that meant something. In our house, we call each other mush all the time and even our friends call us mush. You know, like “Alright mush!” It’s just a friendly gesture, I can’t believe the council asked me to remove it!”
A spokesman for the council, said “We encourage people to get into the festive spirit, but unfortunately the word mush isn’t festive at all. If people are going to decorate their houses it needs to be in the theme of Christmas.”
The Pretty Tatties pasty shop in Camborne are selling pasties in blankets this Christmas.
For £6 you will get a medium steak pasty, wrapped in fresh local bacon. They are also selling a vegetarian version which is their vegetable pasty wrapped in bacon, which is also £6.
Owner of the Pretty Tatties pasty shop in Commercial Street Camborne, Adrian Oggyson, said “Every big retailer has gone crazy for pigs in blankets this year! They’re nothing new and I’m not sure what all the fuss is about! In Scotland, you can get battered pigs in blankets and one supermarket is selling a foot long. Has Christmas got that boring that they have to promote everyday items! What’s next? A football sized sprout? I’ve decided to do something original and I think the pasty in blanket will really take off.”
The offer will be run until January the 1st where it will be changed to the keep fit pasty which is a pasty with no pastry, or as some call it – stew.
