Royal editor admits phone tapping

In today's news, the royal editor of the News of the World newspaper has pleaded guilty to phone tapping.

A spokesflunkey for Prince Charles allegedly said:
'We would get these phone calls out of the blue and all you could hear was this tap-tap-tap noise. We thought that it was possibly Morse Code but why would someone send a message consisting of the letter E repeated over and over again? Turns out it was the royal editor of the News of the World.'

A Government spokesman said:
'Although we can confirm that the editor is not actually a member of the Royal Family, we cannot stop him calling himself Royal Editor any more than we can prevent people referring to Royal Jelly, Queen Bees, King Prawns or Emperor Penguins.'

The Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineers stressed that telephones should not be attached to household plumbing.
