Those people who open the microwave a second or two early, and fail to return the clock to the display screen will not be allowed to know the time all day.
Following increasing reports of ‘early stoppers,’ the Ministry of Timekeeping (MOT) have announced plans to curb the pandemic. MOT Chairman Peter Thape, has insisted that clock offenders will not be allowed to check watches, phones, or be allowed to glance at wall clocks.
They will also not be permitted to meet with other people at, say…1 o‘clock, and then hang around until they turn up.
‘One in four households are now affected by this curse. We had to act,’ said Thape.
‘We’re not monsters though. Felonious clock desecrators will be able to try again at breakfast, tomorrow,’ added Thape.
