Reports are coming in, that the River Clyde in Glasgow has completely dried up after a local housewife accidentally dropped a box of Weetabix breakfast cereal into the river on her way back from Tescos.
Mrs Tracy McDell, 35, told Dafty News: “I was rooting around in my shopping bag for my keys when I accidentally dislodged the Weetabix and it fell into the river.
“Within minutes, all the water had been absorbed and you could see all the old bikes and shopping trolleys and suchlike on the river bed.
“I was shit-scared, to be honest, and went straight home without telling anyone, but have now decided to come clean after my mum gave me a bollocking”
This latest incident comes just 5 years after a man from Whitechapel in East London caused The Thames to sink to its lowest ever recorded level after tipping an out-of-date box of Scots Porridge Oats into the river at East India Dock.
