With the BBC promising that the next series of ‘My Family’ will be the last, leaked plans have revealed that the final episode will show the entire cast being wiped out in the goriest scenes of bloody carnage in the Corporation’s history.
A spokesman said that the programme had run for eleven years because nobody had remembered to put a stop to it after the pilot.
‘We apologise unreservedly to the British public,’ he said. ‘We only hope that our closing shots, featuring the cast’s mutilated corpses spurting arterial blood across their wryly tasteful lounge, will help make amends. Nothing makes up for our providing the platform for Nick to make those BT ads, but we take comfort from the fact that none of them will work again, unless there’s canned laughter in hell.’
