Ban on cricket being mulled!
This just in - authorities in England, Australia and parts of the Indian sub-continent are seriously considering imposing a ban on a form of entertainment known as cricket, particularly its most addictive form, known among cricket-fiends as "Test" cricket. Evidence gathered recently suggests cricket has replaced marijuana, ecstacy and other such controlled substances as the most common way to get "high". Among other side effects, it has been found to have caused more cardiac strokes than even blocked arteries caused by consumption of excessive amounts of red meat. It has been available very easily this summer in the UK and elsewhere and is transmittable through television, consituting a tricky problem for the authorities. Cricket lovers are likely to fight the ban tooth and nail (or what is left of them). - NK
