Maclaren recalls a million stupid parents
Buggy manufacturer Maclaren has announced the urgent recall of over a million defective parents, who were discovered not to have the basic wit to remove their young children’s appendages from a pushchair before collapsing it.
‘A number of single and double parents have been found to lack a vital component, later discovered to be a functioning brain,’ said a spokesman for the manufacturer, who says that popular models ‘mum’, ‘dad’ and ‘uncle kevin’ are equally affected by the defect.
‘Whilst we are confident that the installation of some basic common sense can rectify the fault, we are urging children to stop using these faulty models until we can issue them with a safer replacement – namely a trained chimp – and advise in the meantime that they are kept away from open man-hole covers, naked flames and anywhere that serves hot beverages.’
