News outlets across the globe have been reporting a complete lack of anything significant to report. Apart from the usual famine, pestilence and plague, there is simply nothing newsworthy to put on the front page.

A press spokesperson said it was the slowest news day in living memory. ‘There are some wild claims about a virgin birth somewhere in a foreign place, but things are so desperate we might have to run with the story that the face of a cat in Margate looks a bit like Bill Clinton when it’s licking its arse.
Even the Royals are doing nothing. There are strong rumours that the Queen has opened a tin of shortbread biscuits this morning, but we’re waiting for confirmation on this from our Royal insider.
