It is rumoured that the publishers have recalled the long-awaited book on the history of Scotch Tape Apparently, no one can find the beginning.

Complaints were made following the annual chefs' fancy dress ball last night. A woman dressed only in gooseberries and cream made an improper suggestion to a man dressed in cake and sherry. She made a proper fool of herself and he got a trifle excited.

A grandfather has gone missing after eating four cans of baked beans, two cauliflowers and a jar of gherkins. His family have made an emotional appeal for him not to come home for at least a fortnight.

There has been some good news for the burglar who fell inside a combine harvester while on the run last week. His family said he'll soon be out on bale.
