Netflix launches ‘People Standing in a Row with Arms Folded’

STREAMING service Netflix has launched a new drama about some people who do a job.

Trailers and posters for new series People Standing in a Row with Arms Folded show a group of characters, of varying ages and genders, standing in a line with the main character in the middle.

They are probably doctors, lawyers or something to do with forensics. It looks quite serious and is definitely not a comedy.

One of them is played by an actor from a quite popular 1996 film about a time travelling cop. After a prolonged period of sexual tension, he will shag the woman on the left, but it ultimately won’t work out and by Season Four she will be working for the main baddies.

The one at the back on the right makes a lot of wisecracks and will definitely die at the end of Season One.

A Netflix spokesmen said: “Here they are, some more people standing in a row. They’re not afraid to bend the rules to get the job done, whatever their job might be. I can’t remember exactly.”

Subscriber Norman Steele said: “Is it telly? I’m in.”

Article 50 to be name of experimental punk band in the year 2076

ARTICLE 50 is set to be the name of some weird experimental band in the year 2076, long after anyone remembers what it meant.

The band, which will consist of three people who met in a robot-owned nightclub, will settle on Article 50 after noticing it in on a page on Wikipedia, which by that point will be in 3D.

Singer and synth player Tom Booker said: “People always ask us what the band name means. Apparently, it was this bullshit legal thing from like 60 years ago which people hoped would stop foreigners coming into Britain.

“Didn’t work obviously and I suppose that’s why no one remembers it.”

Drummer Julian Cook added: “Yeah, some guy called Nigel Garage came up with it, shortly before he was decapitated in a freak wind turbine accident.”

“I wanted to call us The Brexiteers but apparently that made us sound like a gang of right bellends.”
