The whole country has woken up with the nagging feeling that they’re supposed to do something really serious.
“I keep racking my brains but nothing leaps to mind,” local pensioner Tom Stalling told us. “I can recall that people have been shouting at us and talking down to us for ages but now I’m buggered if I know what it was all in aid of.”

In the meantime many are reporting vague memories of lots of people mentioning Hitler and a huge and sinister blond toddler flanked by goblins threatening to destroy us all if he doesn’t get lots more sweets.
