HEALTH & SAFETY STRIKES AGAIN-CHEESE ROLLING EVENT CANCELLED!
An annual cheese rolling race that attracts thousands of spectators has been cancelled due to health and safety fears.
This year's event, scheduled for May 31st, will not take place because of police and local council concerns about overcrowding on Cooper's Hill, near Gloucester, organisers announced. "We have had to cancel on the advice of the police and local authorities this year because of the issues of health and safety and other aspects," said Richard Jefferfies of the organising committee. Following a 200 year old tradition, competitors run down the treacherous 1:2 gradient hillside in pursuit of bouncing 7lb Double Gloucester cheeses. Injuries are common and the sheer volume of spectators jams roads, prompting complaints from locals.
What a land we live in when a man can't chase a fucking cheese down a hill because some COUNCIL JOBSWORTH tells him it's dangerous. Stick the cheese up his COUNCIL ARSE! OR IS THERE NO ROOM IN THERE BECAUSE HE'S GOT A TOWN HALL UP IT ALREADY!
