From General Discussion / The Spoof is Home to Unfunny Writers

It'll be all right on the night mate. It usually is. Don't despair. It's still here, and you can't please all of the people all of the time.

As for the content - it's what users send in. A few more Brits wouldn't hurt but then you can't force people to submit articles.

See? I'm thinking bribery again.

Regards

Skoob.

Oh I do Jean. Quite frankly the vast majority are utter garbage, so perhaps the original poster has a point. Whenever I feel happy I come here and have a look at my back catalogue. Then I shed tears of awfulness.

Works for me!

It's satire Jim, but not as we know it.

Probably.

I could have been a contender, God damn you! I blame failing eyesight and a non-existent sense of hummus but there will be those who disagree. Quite frankly I don't blame them. That's why I went into politics.

Thank you Jag! I'd also like to thank the woman on the till at Sainsbury's who whips me beer through the checkout like a stormtrooper!

HUZZAH!

That's the spirit Cliveypops! Carpe Diem and all that. To err is human, to forgive divine. Enough of the hate - spread the love!

Mwaah!

Man you guys are diamonds in a filth encrusted world.

We can't go around threatening people Jag - they'd never take us seriously. I'm thinking bribery...

Sage words indeed Jag. It's all well and good Clivey lighting his pipe and strolling off into the sunset but that does absolutely nothing to raise the bar.

And where's Erskin these days? I used to enjoy the Shylock chronicles (I even learned about narwhals and their tusks from them, not to mention scrimshaws and the like.) and more would be welcome.

What's needed is more bar-raising and less bar-leaning on.

Rally round the flag!

Hear my battle cry!

"For God, Kingdom, Harry and St George! It's Mark's round! Get some in! HUZZAH!"

I think you're being a bit harsh on the newby to be honest.

We need more goldfish stories! Or things about socks!

It's the future.

I saw it in a dream.

We all have to start somewhere Duncan. The Spoof needs some good new writers, and in the interests of fairness, the chap ought to be encouraged. He might get better with the passage of time.

Can't really see it myself but you never know. I was really bad when I first started here and it's been all downhill for me ever since, but that's beside the point.

I like a chap who speaks his mind.

Skoob.

Hello Dave,

You think it isn't funny now? You should have been here back in the good old days. There were some seriously unfunny and uninspirational writers back then - not that I was ever one of them. Despite that I got asked to leave on account of my abject lameness. But that's beside the point.

Occasionally one comes to the awful realisation that one is actually as funny as chemotherapy, thus one throws in the towel in despair and starts anew by entertaining oneself in the bathtub. As happened to me.

Please accept my apologies. I've got soap in my eyes and I haven't even started with the shampoo yet.

Kindest Regards

Skoob.

It got a 5 rating though, so somebody obviously liked it.

Didn't get it myself, but then what do I know?

Left or right? The sock I mean. Did it have toes in it? I only ask because I like socks.

Is she still smuggling margarines six months later or has she been nicked?

We should be told.

It's the least we deserve.

You're joking right?

I know Barack and Michelle had accounts here, but surely not the Mayor of NYC?

From General Discussion / Fake news stories about Ferguson
Posted 9 Dec 14 16:45
Message
Good point. It's a fine line. I think spoofing the media, the reaction to a situation or anything peripheral is acceptable. Spoofing an event where somebody has been killed is tricky at best. It's great when somebody hits the right spot, but there are too many unscrupulous click-bait sites out there who seem to be devoid of a moral compass of any description.

All comes down to the writer/site owner.

Regards

Skoob.
