We, the satirical revolutionaries of Underground Magazine, have occupied Time Out Comedy and held the editor hostage. We hereby issue the readers of the Time Out blog with this single demand:

‘Tweet us @TimeOut_Comedy with your best tongue-in-cheek suggestions of satirical revolutionary changes we can make in the Time Out offices (we have already replaced the tired old office plants with satirical flora).

IF YOU DO NOT, we will be forced to do something vaguely-defined yet truly grim and horrible to Ben Williams, the Time Out Comedy editor who is currently trussed up in the corner of this room. Hi Ben!

Add #OccupyTimeOut to your tweets – there’s nothing worse than a glorious satirical revolution with lots of different hashtags.

Thank you.’

Follow @TimeOut_Comedy on Twitter to find out if Ben will be released. Read how Underground Magazine managed to #OccupyTimeOut and read Underground’s comedy citics’ choice.
