The End of Days has been postponed after the UK Border Agency quarantined for six months the horses used by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on their arrival at Heathrow Airport last night.
‘We were alerted to a problem when a fiery red horse galloped across the night sky towards west London,’ said an official. ‘We need to ensure they don’t represent a disease risk to UK livestock.’
‘Of course they’re a disease risk,’ admitted one rider, Pestilence. ‘This was meant to usher in the Apocalypse, but now we’ve got to sit around for ages and complete a ton of paperwork. Lord Mandelson is going to be furious – now he’ll have to spend another six months on earth as Business Secretary instead.’
