Britain is bracing itself for the biggest Tory punch-up since Thatcher’s famous biffing of Michael Heseltine in a row about his foppish hairdo. With Mayor of London and three-time Zip-wire World Champion Boris Johnson slamming the government’s pro EU stance, the Tory party is set for another Euro-sceptic-centric bloodbath.  Plans are already underway to build panic rooms into the Tory party’s Millbank HQ, with additional bunkers close to Westminster for Tory MPs to take refuge from the war that is soon to be raging around them. Some however, are using the impending duel as an opportunity for innovative merchandising.

“We’ve been piloting the idea of a Dave vs Boris computer game,” said Tory marketing manager, Willy Banter, “It’d be a beat-em-up kinda game, a bit like Mortal Kombat. Dave’s special weapon would be his tie which would double up as a garrotte, and Boris would have his turbo-powered rugby tackle, like the one he did on that Japanese school kid.”

Not wanting to miss out on an opportunity to plunder people’s money, Hollywood film makers have also stolen a ticket for the blue gravy train. The rumours swirling around the prostitutes and cracked pavements of Hollywood suggest that Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in a film about the Bullingdon-boy-brawlathon.

“We think it will be like an Alien vs Predator kinda thing. Two rampaging beasts battling it out, but with Arnie coming along and killing them both,” said Hollywood goss-boss, Roger Megood, whilst aggressively crossing his legs “Arnie will be great for this role. He’s so up to speed on the Brexit debate…only kidding! He thought Brexit was a laxative.” 

If the fight was over 12 rounds, you know who'd win....

Fourteen people were hospitalised and several others were left deeply in shock at a hip-hop concert in Atlanta, Georgia, where contrary to long and almost sacrosanct held expectations, “to the beat y’all”, someone did stop.
“Oh shit it just went crazy yo, everybody was losing their shit,” said hip-hop fan, Willard Fung, “Normally, you don’t stop, to the beat y’all, you don’t stop,” Fung continued, “But some crazy ass fool did stop! Right there in front of everyone, mother fucker stopped!”
Unable to cope with the stopping man, the rapper on stage, up and coming local performer, Rufus E, or Roof-E to his homies, collapsed onto a heap of mixing equipment, which fell off stage and caused a number of injuries. The most severe injuries however were sustained in the prolonged shoot out with automatic weapons that ensued.
Promoters in Atlanta’s thriving hip-hop community are said to already have begun implementing measures to prevent people from stopping in future.
“We spiking drinks with speed, we slipping niggers pills and shit,” said promoter, Dirt-E Preezt, “And if they still want to stop after that, we shoot the motherfuckers.”
Freddie never stops.

Following her recent tweets of disbelief at the lack of black nominees at this year’s Oscars, the Fresh Prince’s wife is again asking for a boycott if there is another failure to represent black people. Though most shared her dismay at the second all white Oscar nomination list a row, few shared her belief that the Presidential election was quite the same thing. Late yesterday, Jada Pinkett-Smith tweeted the following: “Boycott the presidential election if there are no black nominees. Ours is a strong and noble people.”

Sources close to Pinkett-Smith that her comments should not be misread, and that they are in effect and aftershock reaction to the earthquake of racism Pinkett-Smith felt at this year’s Oscar nomination list.

“After that list came, out, she started seeing racism everywhere,” said Willow Smith, shortly before shaking her hair back and forth, “She even said we should boycott the Indian restaurant because there were no blacks working there. It sucks, I liked that place. I flick my hair back and forth….”

Spike Lee joined once again was quick to join Pinkett-Smith in her calls for a race-wide boycott:

“Sister Pinkett-Smith is right. It’s time to boycott those cracker-ass racists.”
Another place boycotted by Jada Pinkett-Smith.
