Wonderful. Particularly like the names. Getting the comedy names right is a bit of an art - witness many dreadfully uninspired efforts on this site.

Of course, Hull are doing incredibly well to be in the Premier League anyway. I mean, look at where Grimsby Town are these days.

From General Discussion / Evidence that Mark doesn't wear a towel on his head
Posted 25 Apr 15 18:46

This is very interesting, but where do the towels come in? I am a great advocate of the towel, and had hoped to find useful bits of towel information in this thread, perhaps advice on towel acquisition or usage.

These headlines are very misleading.

Ah, I see that dave is now late of this parish.

dave was a confrontational cove, as far as Spoof writers go, and as far as Spoof writers go, he went.

To paraphrase a comment allegedly made by Dorothy Parker in a different context (well it would be a different context: I don't think Dorothy Parker ever wrote for The Spoof): the article runs the gamut of satirical and literary excellence from A to B.

As far as the spelling, grammar and punctuation goes, well, we are pretty much sat in a layby awaiting the emergency services not having travelled very far at all, as far as that particular journey goes.

Also we can't really get rid of Mark, since he is the bloke what owns this thing called The Spoof.

I did learn something from all this, however: I didn't know beforehand that the Clintons lived in a local newspaper. Thanks for that corker, dave old lad.

As Groucho Marx said: "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."

Get a long what? I'm off to buy some polyfilla in a minute. Let me know how long you want it and I'll see if they have any in stock at B&Q or Homebase.

I think dave likes it here really.

"I just dash these Spoofs off because my time is absorbed by writing professionaly."

And here was I thinking they were the finely-honed result of hours of creative toil.

Interesting that your time is absorbed by writing 'professionaly'. Why do you spend your days writing that particular word? Also, why choose 'professionaly' rather than 'professionally'? Further, why not try writing different words?

"I mean many of y'all are disturbed by grammar when you now shit about syntax and context and have no concept of WTF is comedy/Satire/Wry Parody"

Now that's what I call irony.

At least dugongs don't have feathers. Imagine plucking a dugong.

Or racing dugongs.

Or dugong pie.

Remember the great flocks of passenger dugong that used to darken the American skies before they became extinct.

and so on.

Maybe it's satire about being fined for keeping a dead body in a cupboard.

It's good to do these kind of articles, having a go at The Spoof or Spoof writers at a time of conflict. Many of us have done this.

This is a poor example though, barely literate, seemingly tossed off quickly without much thought and virtually no revision. Maybe this is all part of the irony, who knows.

Also:


"the body fine satire" - what does this mean?
you used a semi colon instead of a colon!

and where's the punch line?*

*just joking!
