From News Discussion / Onion offers To Buy Out Spoof and Eliminate Embarrassing Satire
Posted 18 Apr 15 00:40

This is a commendable suggestion.



Quote: Ellie James

I don't get it. Publishing anywhere should warrant correct spelling, correct grammar, etc. It matters for every writer I come across. It doesn't matter where your drivel is located on the internet! While it's true there are a lot of stories on here I don't get, or personally find funny because they aren't my cup of tea, but at least the vast majority are spelt correctly, and are punctuated properly. I know there are a few errors that are missed, but the moment they are spotted, the writer tends to correct them.

And, there are a few very successful writers (novelists) who post here who are quite funny and they take the time to make sure the alleged crap they write on here is written in...I don't know...proper English!

A fine effort, nouns, verbs, punctuation, it's all there.

Just a catalogue, thumbing through pages, getting up now and then to change the channel.



Quote: Erskin Quint

In the old days this would have been written about catalogue models. Then again, it wouldn't, as there would have been no internet, hence no Spoof in those days.

Isn't linear Time a killer?

As nice s on the supermodel, who could argue with that.

Ah, thank you Victor, ever the calm voice of reason in a turbulent time. Personally, for a plural, I would have opted for just putting an 's' on the end, but what do I know?

I not certain about this but am willing to wager that a "call team" is the plural of super model. It is not in common use I believe due to the scarcity of young women of this category less so for groups of them of any number.



Quote: Erskin Quint


With the availability of stockphotos, you can have a cracking hot secretary, need a picture of a call team comprised of supermodels you can have that. How about a baby hedgehog with an apple stuck to its spines? It's all possible now thanks to the emergence of these stock sites.


"In most European countries, hedgehogs are believed to be a hard-working no-nonsense animal[citation needed]. This partially results from the folk belief that hedgehogs collect apples and mushrooms and carry them to their secret storage." (Wikipedia)

I have to say that my personal experience does not tally with any of this stuff about hedgehogs, as most of the hedgehogs I know are far from "hard-working no-nonsense". Yes, they collect mushrooms (magic ones I reckon, from the way they carry on). But I have never seen one with an apple on its spines.

Also, what is a "call team comprised of supermodels"?

A funny border crossing story I recall is that a young suspect was strip searched, told to bend over and spread his cheeks.

Eager to cooperate he bent over, placed his forefingers in the sides of his mouth and pulled his cheeks apart
