Ditch digging has become the fastest growing industry in Britain after thousands of people took to the nearest patch of soft earth to create a suitable resting place for Boris Johnson.
Ditch digging has overtaken the jobs of full-time mummy and Brexit negotiator to become the fastest growing industry in Britain after a banner month.
While ditch digging doesn’t currently pay financially, the enormous satisfaction it provides is more than enough for most people to pick up a spade and get to work.
‘I’m not getting paid a bean for this,’ Mike Handle told us while shovelling out dirt. ‘It’s not about the money though. It’s about picturing Boris Johnson’s bloated corpse right here in front of me. This is the happiest I’ve ever been at work.’
Digging hasn’t been this popular since the World War II ‘dig for victory’ campaign, perhaps finally providing the link between Winston Churchill and Boris Johnson that Johnson so desperately would like.
