GREAT BRITAIN descended into a mental breakdown after millions struggled to cope with the stress of changing their cooker clocks forward at the weekend, it has emerged.
Psychiatric hospitals up and down the country were said to be swamped with housewives on a frenzied rampage as the bi-annual tradition of changing the clocks drove many into a complete breakdown.
One leading psychiatric unit told Dafty News: “The stresses of trying to change the time on cookers is just too much for some people to cope with.
“If the clocks are hand dials then thatâ€™s okay but the digital ones seems to have driven many over the edge. We are completely fully booked and expect more as the chaos continues.”
Cooker clock expert and time change psychologist Avril Beckenstein said: “Itâ€™s not as much as the clocks themselves but the cooker manuals. They make no sense at all. There are too many buttons and the features can be a bit overwhelming.”
Meanwhile, psychotic drugÂ companies have announced a spike in sales and canâ€™t wait until October when the clocks go back again.
