A vacuous pop star's fanny topped The Spoof!'s most read articles for the month of November, proving that modern satire is just as wiling to tackle the big news issues as in the so-called "hey-day" of the 60's satire boom.
Other tabloid fodder taken up by lesser satirists included the Democrat triumph in the senate followed by the Rumsfeld resignation and the alleged state-sponsored murder of an ex-KGB spy. Professor Jeff Trousers, a lecturer in Sociology at Slough Polytechnic claims "this is another positive sign that satirical comedy is beginning to eclipse traditional news sources as the main point of reference for young people."
Claims by "boring, stuffy people who read books and stuff" that the increasing popularity of the internet is reducing our interest in current affairs to celebrity driven soundbites have been once again been rubbished by The Spoof!'s findings. The potential global impact of a glimpse of an ex-Mouseketeer's snatch has been championed by the online masses where in a darker age people would have simply asked "so fucking what?"
Other top muses for the scathing pens of today's moral regulators included Paris Hilton's own pantyless shenanigans, someone who used to be famous saying "nigger" and Lindsey Lohan being... erm, still famous.
Reports that modern satire is not only dead but has been cremated twice and scattered in the Bermuda triangle can therefore be put firmly to bed.
