Government bans hoverboards and going on about Back to the Future

THE government has banned hoverboards and enthusing about Back to the Future.

Anyone wishing to use a hoverboard or to argue the merits of a 1980s time-travel comedy can now only do so on private land. 

Eleanor Shaw of the CPS said: “Anyone riding a so-called hoverboard on the streets is liable for prosecution, and that goes double for anyone still banging on about Marty McFly like a family sci-fi comedy is the best thing to come out of human culture in the last 30 years.

“Discussion appertaining to the sequel, literally a retread of the dubious glories of the first, or the odious third instalment could result in prison time.”

41-year-old Tom Booker said: “I’m going to a former airfield this weekend, where I can shout my theories about the movie’s playful critique of Freudian psychoanalysis and the law can’t touch me. 

“I’ll leave the hoverboard at home though, because it makes me look like someone pretending to be a ghost who has forgotten to put a white sheet over themselves.

“Also it does not actually hover and is clearly on wheels.”
