English FA Deny Wembley to be Used for Giant Lasagne After Voicenote Goes Viral

English FA Deny Wembley to be Used for Giant Lasagne After Voicenote Goes Viral

The English FA have been forced to deny Wembley Stadium is set to be used to help cook a giant lasagne, after a voice note from a fan went viral on social media.

With the Covid-19 pandemic gripping Europe, rumours of a nationwide lockdown spread like wildfire on various different social media platforms on Thursday night, and Twitter user @WillJosephCook cooked up the funniest reaction.

A recording sent to one of his WhatsApp chats detailed rumours of a new government protocol to deal with the crisis – by cooking a mammoth lasagne inside England’s National Stadium.

He claimed the army were already preparing giant pasta sheets, and were planning to use the undersoil heating to cook it, before using drones to deliver individual slices to citizens across the country:

Obviously this is just nothing more a silly joke but, remarkably, the FA have felt compelled to deny there’s any truth to the story, according to the Mirror.

Whilst they acknowledged the clip and were aware of its existence, the FA’s hierarchy denied having any plans to transform their ground into a gigantic lasagne.

Speaking to The Guardian, the man behind the prank said: “It was just a one take. I sent it to the football group, my mum and the girl that I’m trying to date.

“It went around the football group. Then I got people that I know forwarding it to me, not knowing it was me, or forwarding it to me asking if I’d heard it. Ex-girlfriends were coming out of the woodwork asking was it me.”

It’s about time the Coronavirus provided something humorous, eh?

What do think of the prank, and the FA’s slightly bizarre response?
