Not Venus, Mr. Prez.....the planet with the severe gas build up was Uranus ....(or was that just your head with the severe gas build up?). I sometimes wonder with the amount of gas in your ears, why you just don't float away like a balloon, then I guess it's probably your conscience weighing you down.

Actually, I think it goes back to that old political doctrine of " plausible deniability. " It worked for the wmds, why won't it work for global warming?

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

Nice work, Filbert, on the "Fat, ugly, disgusting, stupid, degenerate, losers protest Donald Trump" story. Now you're getting your hands dirty!

I couldn't 6 star him on that one coz there's no SIX star button so I had to go with 5.

Somebody's lowballing these stories when they come out it seems. When I got there that one was sitting at 2.5 stars. You need to go work for the Onion Mr Filbert .. good un there that story. The morale is I guess, don't let the ratings dictate how good you feel about yourself or your story because ratings mean squaT. You made my day with that one.

I gave up on the Britney Spears articles when it was clear that my other better-written articles were getting not 1/10 as many hits as BS.

First I thought it was funny, then it was just depressing. Finally I resorted to publishing a teaser Britney Spears headliner that in fact accused people of going to hell for looking up Britney Spears privates during the Christmas season when they should be thankful to Jesus Christ who died on the cross.

Wahh... that's already gotten close to 29,000 hits. Oh the depravity!

In case you don't know which one it is

Global warming, we're doomed.

Glad ya all enjoyed the "Fat, ugly, disgusting, stupid, degenerate, losers, piece. I thought them eloping was an interesting spin also.

Out of 57 articles I've done, I think 7 are Britney Spears inspired. It's just that when I try to complete my thought and close it out something happens that's irresistable. I'm sick of her vagina too.

Don't you think the eyeballs that come into the Spoof for
Britney also trickle into a broader readership just because of the (excuse me) exposure?

It seems like people not aware of this site are finding it because of some splashy exploitation pieces that grab their attention.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Many of my stories get only a couple of hundred hits and then are never seen again (after falling out of rotation). If I include the name Britney or Paris, I am guaranteed at least 1000 hits on that story within the first three days.

Most of my best stuff is never seen, unless it is by people who are originally brought here to read the latest Britney style headline.

Because it brings them in, I try to write one splashy/timely thing that I know will bring people here for every two other stories (that I usually think are better and have more fun writting).

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

I think my most "out of the box" story was Political Jabberwocky" with a whopping 225 views as opposed to Britney
Spears vagina is #1 35,000 and still going strong.
I think the only reason I have 225 on Jabberwocky is because
of the 35,000.

I'm new at this and could be wrong but I don't think so.

I was watching the Peoples Choice Awards last night and there were three references to no underware and I only watched the first 30 minutes. It's hard to not comment on the impact a vagina has had on popular culture.

Hally Berry, Robin Williams and Jennifer Aniston all had no underware comments. if it's good enough for their network television writers who am I to think myself superior?
