Journalists from all the news media were said to be 'in meltdown' today at the increasing disaster in Japan.
A spokesman for the journalists, veteran Ron Codger, said: 'This is the best thing that's happened to us since Princess Diana died. I've nearly wet myself with excitement. This has got the lot! There's a massive natural disaster, which means we can fly in helicopters all over the place taking pictures of the devastation. Then we can run loads of pictures of people weeping over their dead relatives and destroyed homes. And now we're looking forward to a nuclear power plant blowing itself the bits all over the place, and with any luck killing thousands of people and giving millions more radiation poisoning.
'We can run for weeks with this one, with lots of different pictures of the disaster every day, and big diagrams showing how Britain will be affected by a nuclear explosion in Japan. And we can run scare-mongering stories about how Britain will be engulfed by a tsunami and all our nuclear plants will blow up - the bit about the sea having to rise by sixteen feet for this to happen will be in very small print of course.
'So it's great news all round. Naturally none of us journalists have done a thing to help the suffering people in Japan because if we did, there wouldn't be any human tragedy stories, would there.'
