WAR, Famine, Pestilence and Death have a fifth companion known as Stupidity, experts have discovered.
The find was made in an obscure passage in the Apocrypha of St Nigel, a little-known fifth-century Saint who is patron of talking loudly in pubs and deliberately driving your car into a tree.
St Nigel was martyred after falling down a manhole to the sound of a host of angelic sad trombones.
Bible expert Tom Logan, from the Institute of Studies, warned the discovery suggested the end times might be upon us.
He said: “The passage in question makes a direct reference to the ‘last trump of doom’ when Stupidity would ride forth to bring manifold miseries upon all the lands of the Earth.
“In his left hand he held a great scroll upon which were uncounted numbers of unsourced memes which reinforce thine prejudices, and when opened it rained forth a plague of fatuousness upon humanity.
“And all comments threads followed after him.”
