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.
A Cornish school sports day was cancelled today when a teacher mistook a parents fart for thunder.
The incident happened at Treday school, near Redruth earlier this afternoon. Parents were left baffled when the headteacher, Mr. Hawk also known as Chalky Hawky called off the event.
Parent, Margaret Banon was watching her son Tony in the egg and spoon race when it happened, she said “Tony was winning the egg and spoon race and old Chalky Hawky was stood at the finish line. Next minute, a big dad who was stood next to him, lifted his leg and let out this massive fart. His ass was so big, it must have travelled a fair old distance from his bum hole, down the crack of his ass before it actually surfaced and made a noise. It was beastly and even sounded like thunder! But Chalky was concentrating on the race so much, the noise made him jump. He looked up at the sky and saw grey clouds, so he ordered everyone to stop what they were doing and return to the class room immediately. He then made a bizarre announcement, saying there was thunder and lightning. I think he was the only one who didn’t realise it was a fart”
A parent called Karen was so angry, she threatened to complain to Ofsted, she said “I was so upset I demanded to see the headmaster immediately. The headmaster apologised but it wasn’t enough. I want to speak to Ofsted and I will be claiming compensation as I took the afternoon off work and even drove two miles to get here, which costs money too you know!”
It’s not sure if the sports day is being rescheduled.
A man dressed as Santa was caught shoplifting in Camborne today. Security managed to stop the man when they grabbed him by the sack.
Security guard, Derek Wiseman of the Chocolate Box pound shop captured the thief, he said “I was stood in the shop and suddenly this scruffy looking Santa came through the door carrying a black sack. Apart from the fact he was dressed like Santa, he was looking rather dodgy. He kept looking round to see if anyone was watching before stuffing a load of Lynx Africa into his bag. As he tried to leave the shop, he saw me and started running. I chased him down into the square, where I managed to grab his sack. He tripped and I landed on him. I gripped him and his sack very tightly until the police arrived. That’s the first time I’ve come across a thieving Santa, it was weird!”
The man was later named as 32 year old, Harry Sack, of Fore Street Camborne. He will face trial later this month at Truro Crown Court.
The Meht Office have confirmed we will be getting snow, dreckly.
Camborne’s head meteorologist, Derek Hutchins gave the report this morning on his Facebook profile, he said “We’ve been looking at the weather maps and can’t make head nor tail of them. We’ve been struggling in the office ever since they upgraded our computer from Windows 98 to Windows Xp. The only good thing is, Solitaire still works.”
Yesterday they reported that we will be getting a heatwave on Christmas day. The only thing Derek is certain about, is that we will be getting a completely different weather forecast tomorrow.
The Meht Office has reported that we are set for a heatwave in December which will last through until early next year.
Weather reporter, Derek Hutchins, said “It’s gonna be hot, so hot. Christmas day will be hotter than your mum and that’s bleddy hot! Expect the beaches to be stacked out and crawling with emmets!”
Some news agencies are reporting that it will be snowing on Christmas, but they’ll say anything!
The Meht Office have advised to stock up on sun cream and ask for speedos as a Christmas present! They also said to enjoy it while you can, because it will be pissing down in February.
