Sherwood Forest Sold To America

21/02/11 -- The government have announced that Sherwood Forest has been sold to an American conglomerate who plan to redevelop the site into the world's largest theme park. Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves Land, as the forest will be renamed, will contain the longest roller coaster ride in Europe and is expected to attract 5 million visitors a day.

The forest may have to undergo "some minor redevelopment" say the company behind the project, but they insist that every tree that they chop down will be replaced by and authentic American plastic one.

"We're gonna give you people the biggest goddam theme park in the world, which is worth far more than a few poxy old trees," said Chip Chop, the man behind the project.
