Popular children’s book characters the Mr Men have today launched a campaign to stop the stereotyping that they say is blighting their lives.
‘It’s a bloody disgrace,’ complained Mr Grumpy. ‘We’re being seen as one-dimensional characters by you blithering idiots! We’re not going to take it any more!’ Other Mr Men added their support to the campaign, with Mr Noisy insisting ‘THERE’S MORE TO ME THAN SOMEONE WHO JUST SHOUTS A LOT!’ and Mr Greedy explaining ‘I sometimes feel like people just see as a piece of meat,’ before licking his lips and adding ‘Mmmmmmm. Meat…’. Mr Quiet also said something, but nobody was quite sure what.
Although Mr Happy and Mr Cheerful stated that they are perfectly satisfied with their public perceptions, the Government is now urging the Mr Men and their publishers to sit down around the table to settle their differences, although it has been pointed out that Mr Bump demolished the table when he slipped on a roller skate left on the floor by Mr Messy.
