Girls and young women who practice writing the surname of the man they fancy are to be limited to just two fonts following news of a national ink shortage.
Those females who replace their own surname with the last name of a potential suitor face new limitations on the number of times they can write down the new moniker.
National Ink Chairman, Peter Thape has asked that girls use only their own handwriting, then joined up, and possibly capitals but do not practice cheque book style signatures, or autographs in these austere times.
‘As you know, blue and black ink is running out, so just half a page per boyfriend, please,’ said Thape.
‘And definitely no bubble writing, 3D, or shading,’ added Thape.
