Chambers was frustrated after the airport he was due to fly from was closed due to snow. He tweeted. "Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your sh** together otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!!"
Not the funniest tweet, admittedly, but not the scariest either. Terrorists tend not to tweet their intentions, along with their name. Nor have they instituted a jihad on weather.
A week after his tweet, Chambers was visited by 4 policeman, at work. He lost his job and was prosecuted. He was then convicted and fined by a district judge. A crown court judge, sitting with two magistrates, then dismissed his appeal.
Now two judges, two magistrates and the entire Crown Prosecution Service will be tested to see what planet they originated on. A CPS spokesman told The Daily Slap: "To be fair, we only prosecuted him for a joke, so it's a bit harsh to criticise us. Some people just don't get prosecutor humour."
However, CPS officials are expected to man the Edinburgh Festival next month when real professional comedians are expecting to attempt other jokes. Some will be better than Chambers' effort, some will be around the same level. Don’t be surprised to see G4S burst into the auditorium if laughter breaks out, possibly in clown shoes.
