[i]The newspaper giant The Daily Mail shook the world today, when they announced that, after years of study and tests, the animated band 'Gorillaz' are actually real people and that the human race is, in fact, a cartoon.
The announcement came at 12.00 today, when a spokesman for The Mail gave the statement. "Gorillaz are a huge hit," said Mr Simon Hewitt, a reporter for the newspaper, "and they have produced some great songs, but the fact that they are animated doesn't really seem to add up. I mean, come on, how can cartoons produce such great hits? It begs belief! They would have to be drawn writing every sinlge note, and that would take a lot of time. And paper. No, something else is going on here. So, we decided to do some tests, and we discovered that they are actually living beings and we are all just really well drawn cartoons."
Many people have commented on this shcok announcement, including Mr David Cameron, the currnet Prime Minister. "Yes, this is a huge shock, but somehow, it does add up. I always wondered whether we were just drawings. I mean, take the election for example: How could the Tory party ever get into office, if it hadn't been written or drawn by some carttonist. It's such a silly story, it has to be a cartoon." Mr Cameron later added "Oh, and I love Gorillaz. Yes, they can't say that David C doesn't like a bit of modern music. They're the band with the four long haired men, right? One of them had glasses I think." On news that he had them confused with The Beatles, Mr Cameron simply made some odd sighing noises and retreated to Downing Street.
The news had met little disagreement, and the Daily Mail are currently veyr pleased about their first true news story. However, news has just reached that Paul Dacre, the editor of the newspaper, stormed out of a news meeting when a reporter asked him "Don't you think that someone could have actually drawn The Gorillaz and not us?"
