The catastrophically disastrous nightmare that is 2016 took a surprising turn for the better today, amid reports that Satan has been signed off with stress and exhaustion.

Efforts to contact him for a statement have been unsuccessful, but a close source confirmed that it had been a busy year for the Prince of Darkness.

“Lucifer is not getting any younger, and this year has proved to be one of his most energy sapping” the source said.

“Hopefully he’ll be back on his cloven hooves before too long”.
