It was announced today that a north London man has been miraculously cured of a silver allergy that has plagued him all his life. The man, known only as Harry K, was so sensitive to the precious metal that he was forced to stay in a special facility in White Hart Lane where he was guaranteed never to encounter any silverware.
It’s not known exactly how he was cured, though he was often observed licking the windows of the sunshine variety coach taking him on days out with his similarly afflicted friends. He said the cure had completely transformed his life, allowing him to travel to places like Munich that would have been off-limits to him before.
Asked whether Harry would learn German during his stay, his manager replied "I doubt it, in 30 years he hardly made any progress with English."
