Spoof Writers were appalled when they heard a rumour that The Spoof was planning to purchase The News Of The World.
One Spoof Writer, who had to be held-down as she was becoming pretty hysterical, yelled,
"It's a load of bloody tripe a' tell ya'. Our Administrator has more bloody sense and scruples in his little finger than all of the bloody disgusting people connected to that shite of a paper. 'E might be poor but at least 'e's HONEST."
Another writer continued,
"She's right you know. We can hold our heads up high writing for The Spoof. We don't go around hacking into people's phones and causing so much hurt to individuals.We don't go around bribing police for stories. We just make 'em all up. Yeah! Mostly when we've 'ad a skinful. No harm! No foul."
Other Spoof Writers went on to say that at least 90% of writers on the humour site DO have consciences and they wouldn't stoop as low as some of those who write, or have written, for The News of the World.
Four thousand individuals are thought to have had their phones hacked by people working for The News of the Word. A very astute Spoof writer commented that the investigation will probably never get to the root of the scandal as it will likely be stalled as employees of the News of the World are probably shredding and burning evidence as we write.
A Spoofwriter with a foreign accent added that if ANYONE offers to buy the newspaper they should have their head examined.
The last issue of the News of the World will be out on Sunday. That will probably be the day when the newspaper's sales 'go through the roof' as people rush to buy a piece of journalistic history.
