image for Crisis Narrowly Averted, Anti-Spoof Threat Condition Remains at Highest Level: "Dire" ¿Shall I put a cork in it?

Spoof Headquarters recently thwarted the efforts of a malicious anti-spoof attack masquerading as an actual writer. Details are scarce, but what is known is that the following piece allegedly submitted by SpaceElevator was at the heart of the attack:

Cutbacks & Lax Standards Allow Nonsensical Story to Bypass TheSpoof.com Quality Control Department

As standards worsen on TheSpoof.com (click here and/or here) the following soup-sandwich piece of gobbledygook was submitted as a legitimate spoof news piece:

famous person (i.e. Lindsay Lohan)
more stuff here...
bodily function (i.e. flatulence)
blah blah blah...
gratuitous nudity (i.e. cleavage)
yadda yadda yadda...
dead person (i.e. Michael Jackson)
more stuff here...
other people's misfortunes (i.e. baldness)
blah blah blah...
kitchen revolution (i.e. more stuff here)
yadda yadda yadda...
moral superiority (i.e. I'm right, you're wrong)
more stuff here...
semi-serious social commentary (i.e. the high price of nice-to-have things)
et cetera...

TheSpoof.com's spell-checker had this to say: "Grammatically, it's correct".

"The most audacious aspect of this attack is that it was submitted via the Science and Technology department, in the color Teal," said a senior official, adding "Due to its complexity this appears to be the work of professionals, most likely with the backing of a government."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
