Werewolves of London

Her Majesty’s Constabulary have finally got to the bottom of Britain’s rocketing crime epidemic. It’s the lunar cycle of violence :

Extra police officers are to be deployed on the streets this summer after research established a direct link between the full moon and violence.

Analysts at Sussex Police found a rise in unruly incidents at full moon while investigating external factors that influence people’s behaviour.

Together with the most common paydays, the full moon was identified as a particular time when aggressive behaviour rose among drinkers in pubs and nightclubs in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex.

Inspector Andy Parr said that he would like universities to examine further the link with the lunar cycle.

“I compared a graph of full moons and a graph of last year’s violent crimes and there is a trend,” he said.

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s-a more crime.
