Parental Advisory - This Article Contains The 'C' Word
Literary critics hailed today's upcoming release of the latest episode in the interminably dreary 'adventure serial' - The Mystery Of Puddleby Cove - Featuring The Spiffing Six - Episode Six - with undisguised apathy.
And most of them went to bed, giving it not a second thought.
The 'gripping' serial, featuring painfully stereotypical characters, and lacking any kind of discipline, let alone a coherent plotline, has hit the headlines in the UK for being the only ongoing serial yarn where fuck all ever seems to happen.
"I think it's a load of old shit, really," said Mark Lowton, CEO of side-splittingly hilarious spoof news website www.thespoof.com "But I publish it because at least the daft bastard who wrote it puts tags on it. And that helps. Although in this case - it probably doesn't help a great deal."
Which encapsulated the general mood.
"Even I thought it was shit," said Anne Shuttlecock, long suffering wife of the author. "A bit like my tit of a husband really - all talk and very little substance."
"I lost interest in it when the dog inexplicably disappeared," explained Spoof agony aunt and consultant medical advisor Lynton, after almost blowing himself up experimenting with pyrotechnics in his garden shed in France. "I'm usually quite a patient man, but nobody deserves this."
As far as the struggling illiterate author goes, one of his compatriots, (who insisted on anonymity,) at www.thespoof.com had these words to say about the author and the story, such as it is:
"The man's a cove!"
So, nothing to look forward to here then.
Move along now...
More as we get it.
