Extract from Story:
Republican nobody Sarah Palin isn't really a nobody at all, it has been revealed. For Sarah is, in real life, none other than the revered former writer from TheSpoof.com, Gnarly Erik! 'Erik', who wrote some 9081 stories for TheSpoof.com, before he deleted them in a blind rage last year, is the alter-ego of the woman who, despite having had no experience in leadership on a large scale, may end u.....

Long time no see!

Let's keep it that way.

Good story.


I'm fed up of writing altogether, QM. Thing is, I just can't seem to stop. I've tried everything - hiding the laptop (I always find it!), arguing with myself about the stories (MW always wins!), doing household chores instead (I race through them, and arrive trance-like, in front of my keyboard), oversleeping, undereating, not washing, shaving or bathing, not turning the TV on for inspiration, or the radio, ignoring the neighbours, wife, children, milkman, postman...

Nothing works. In fact, my output is steadily increasing. I think I may be heading for meltdown. You know, like 2000 Hadron Colliders placed end-to-end, all switched on at the same time, all capable of setting in motion a train of events that, out of control, produce devastating Black Holes, whirling madly, remorselessly, unrelentingly, sucking everything inside, even buildings and parks, until nothing remains...


...except my laptop.

Quarter of an ounce of Nepalese temple balls should do it.

Ask Ferg.

Can't get that anymore. Not since the royal famiy got whacked by the crown prince. Try what I do: get committed for 30 days at a time. Unless you can type in a strait-jacket and smuggle a laptop in rectally, that'll cure ya.

Plenty of Nepalese temple balls in the Brighton/Hove area as well as from Rotten Dave at the Admiral Codrington pub in Chelsea.

Re strait jacket/committed: I though they use the liquid cosh these days...

This could be what I've been looking for. Thing is, my mind will still be working, typing out the stories on 'imaginary screens', I'll be looking into the grille in the corner of my cell, which would become the Live Updates box, "Someone is reading your spoof news story: Monkey Woods Continues Writing Bullshit From Jail", never-ending lists of viewers all clamouring for my latest works, my brain, teeming with ideas, pressure building, Hadron Migraines chewing me up, can't stand it! Can't take anymore! Got to get out! Guard! Guard! Nurse! Mummy!

Rotten Dave? He's making that kind of profit and still owes me money?

Yep, Rotten Dave's rolling in dosh and driving a new Bentley Azure. Wife's Kathmandu diplomatic bag keeps him busy.

Back to the original post....Palin can't be Gnarly Eric. She's a Christian.

She also appears to have more personality and is not as easily rattled.

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.

Liquid cosh? You guys have a fancy psychiatric system over there in the U.K. In Alaska, they just put you on an ice floe, and after 30 days "observation", if you're still alive, you're sane.

What do you mean "imaginary screens"? They're right over there....can't you see them? The blinking cursor hanging silently in space demanding another parody to mock reality. No, not that one...the other one. Yeah, that's it.

Take David Duchcovny checking himself in for sex addiction; like him you have to take these withdrawals one day at a time. Soon, the cursor will stop demanding satirical tribute and you'll be free to surf porn.

It's all right, I suppose.
