Four days into October, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong still hasn’t woken up, according to concerned relatives.
Armstrong, who left a note with clear instructions to get him out of bed on October 1st, has remained resolutely dozing despite the best efforts of his nearest and dearest to shift him.
Close family members are hoping they can get him up as there’s still that load of washing-up to do from the end of August and he’s not getting out of it this easily, and besides his duvet is getting really manky now.
“We’ve tried everything”, we were told.
“We’ve rung out the bells again, like we did when spring began because it worked that time, but no effect.
“Even though summer has come and passed he just rolls over and reaches for the snooze button for the umpteenth time.
“If he’s not out of bed soon we’ll roll him out into the rain. It’s so heavy it looks like it’s falling from the stars so even he can’t pretend to sleep through that.”
