'Abandoned' child probably just a set-up for annoying YouTube thing

A DISTRESSED child in a park is probably just pretending for some YouTube clip about compassion.

36-year-old passerby Tom Booker said: “If you see anyone alone and apparently in need of help, nine times out of ten they’re being secretly filmed for a YouTube channel about people’s ‘amazing reactions’ to those kinds of things.

“Last year I assisted an old lady who’d apparently fallen over and broken her hip, turned out she was an actress and I ended up making twelve grand in ad revenue for someone called ‘Yorkie99’.

“Comments on the YouTube page included ‘so inspiring’ and ‘I’ve shagged both of them’.

“Anyway there’s definitely a hidden camera. Keep walking, that kid is just click meat.”

Wales begs Scotland to stay

WALES has begged Scotland not to leave it trapped in the UK with those two other mad bastards.

Wales, which shares with Scotland a minority language, tons of mountains and an affinity with alcohol, is terrified of being left alone with England and Northern Ireland.

It pleaded: “Safety in numbers, right? All Celts together? Please, you know what they’re like, always fighting and tanks and bombs and shit.

“I’d like to think I could just huddle up over here behind Offa’’s Dyke and they wouldn’t notice me, but if you’re gone I’m the only one they’’ve got to shout at.

“”England’’s polite enough but it just takes everything and gives it to spoilt London, and I can’’t even understand Northern Ireland half the time.””

Wales particularly fears being drawn into sectarian arguments and being asked to give an opinion on religious questions, worshipping as it does small blue men who live in caves above the mist line.

Scotland has replied that it ‘just can’’t stand it any more’ and that Wales would do the same if it could, and that it’’d ‘bring Wales along if only they had contiguous borders’.

It then contacted Northern Ireland asking if they needed a couple of million lunatic Glaswegian Catholics and Protestants who liked marching, petrol bombs and very specific colours.

Northern Ireland replied: “”The more the merrier.””
