X-Factor's ever so slightly effeminate, but not necessarily gay, contestant, Johnny Robinson, has been in talks with the big boys at world renowned satirical website, The Spoof - with a view to signing up as a writer.
Sources say that Robinson first logged on to the website a couple of years ago, and wasn't very impressed by what he saw, saying simply that the site didn't appear to be very gay friendly.
This has been something of an enigma, in the site's illustrious history, as gay men seem to be ideally suited to spoofing the news - or anything else for that matter!
It was when a friend of Johnny's alerted the rising star to the strange antics of Gay Larry, that Johnny Robinson concluded that the Spoof wouldn't be such a bad place for him to vent his spleen after all.
Further investigation revealed that there was in fact a gay hardcore of writers on the site all along, but that they'd been kind of afraid to let their hair down until recently, for fear of persecution.
Spoof administrator, Mark Lowton, was quick to emphasise that writers from all walks of life are welcome to contribute to the wonderfully tolerant ambience. Sharpened quills are as acceptable as whimsy, provided contributors adhere to a few simple guidelines. Mr Lowton confirmed that Johnny would indeed be welcomed with open arms as a contributor.
"Providing he doesn't start bitching," writer Skoob1999 commented.
"Precisely!" said cross dressing Juanita Juan, in a surprisingly deep voice. "I don't see the point in people coming here if all they're going to do is moan, and get all paranoid about things."
"It's better being inside looking out, than on the outside looking in," said Spoofer armfeetandtoe. "I love these people!"
In a gay way?
More as we get it.
