British Standards Institute introduces Standard British Idiots:
Following a 30 percent increase in domestic accidents, the British Standards Institute has recruited 1000 Standard British Idiots (SBIs) to perform safety tests on a range of appliances. A spokesperson explained: ‘For years we have worked on the assumption that nobody in their right mind would stick a spoon into a live socket, but they do. We have recruited this calibre of person: someone who will look for a gas leak with a match, or set off across the channel on a lilo.’
I’m thinking of setting up a nomination web page for them.
