Given that the points system on theSpoof tends to encourage idiots like Mr Eatsbutt to sit up all night churning out monstrous drivel, just to elevate his position in the points table, wouldn't it be better if points were done away with altogether?

Chris Garret makes this point in the WDF.

If you want point scoring stories, then write drivel that appeals to the 'Merican's.

Points don't equal quality, satirical stories!

Lucifer, I have read your one article.

You are not funny.

Anyway, thanks so much for keeping the writers forums so busy the last few days.

Keep trying though. You talk a good game. Maybe some day your stories will be as interesting.

Tom, I haven't read more than a couple of your articles. There really didn't seem much point after your 'Dysfunctional family...' piece caught my eye. It was unimaginative and excrutiatingly dull, both attributes which I imagine could equally apply to your good self.

It's probably best for you to stick to your ten second puppet shows for dim kids in future. I suspect that's where your true talent lies.

Have a nice day.

Was that supposed to be a play on words?

It's not very good, if it was.

Hmmm.... nice try Greg. But I think you know all about secret identities. Your make-believe difficulties with the English language fools no-one (well,... it would fool Eatsbutt obviously, but that's just because he's a simpleton).

Here's a tip. Remember that it's the tenses that foreigners have so much trouble with. So stick to the present tense exclusively. It will sound stilted and clumsy, and above all... 'foreign', which is clearly the effect your are trying to achieve.

There's hope for you yet. Your sense of humour appears to be evolving.

Let me know when you have opposing thumbs.
