Top International British scientists have finnished work on the latest instrument invented for no particular purpose that makes a devilish squaking sort noise at random intervals.
The device, to be known as the MKII what does that confounded thing do, anyway? is expected to be fitted in every British home by next winter.
It will be wall mounted in the hall or living room by a man from the gas board, or may simply just appear, apparently of its own accord, as no one will admit to having put it there.
Some people suspect the device may have a thing about seafood and be able to communicate with Toads for reasons of its own,
It is expected to last for several weeks before someone gets up in the night and hurls it from a window.
That is no guarantee that it will not be there in the morning
