Henry the eighth beckoned his fourth wife and lectured her about forgetting to put his iPhone on charge. She soon lost Henry (divorced) and Henry remarried. This wife stayed around a bit longer, but it didn’t mean she was any better. She was constantly leaving the hoover lying around and don’t get me started on the spending. She was a shopaholic. She never accompanied Henry on his trips to the ice-cream van. Instead, she would walk to PC world or Currys and would spend an hour picking out an i-pad for her nan and a new dishwasher for her mother. She spent up to £1000 pounds on Christmas presents for her family. Henry decided he still loved her and she survived. Unfortunately, the i-Phone didn’t. It broke in the summer of 1543 when one of Henry’s servants tripped on the laces of his Vans shoes. He was, of course, executed.

It was the day of the big race and Emily Davison was tweeting on her i-Phone about her plans for the day.

The race began and Emily ran under the silver lined rope and held a banner up representing the suffragettes and women’s rights. She came face to face with a horse wearing a diamond brown band coming at her going 100 miles per hour. She tried to run but she felt ill and full after the hamburger she ate that day. The Jockey’s plastic goggles fell off along with his plastic number sheet. Everybody watched as Emily Davison of the amazing suffragettes was no more.
