Licence payers' money used to make up pointless trophy for BBC

BBC bosses said they were surprised when the media corporation took awards in several categories of the DAFTAs in London yesterday. The annual awards was hosted at the Lord Mayor's Hall in front of a live audience of celebrities, broadcast live by the BBC and watched on television screens across the world.

The BBC won:

    best spoof news channel award
    best spoof competition channel award
    best waste of licence payers' money award

The editor of theSpoof! website, Mark Lowton, expressed disappointment at coming second in the coveted news channel awards. In an interview to the BBC he was reported as saying:

"We were very disappointed… Hello, good evening… Talented writers such as monkey woods, queen mudder, jalapeno man and mister meaner… Very happy to be invited."

BBC boss Mark Thompson told our reporter:

"We're very surprised at these awards, because we weren't really trying. This shows what we could do if we really do try. We promise to continue to win awards like these and justify the enormous and pointless viewers' licence fee."

Make Noshing Mink's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
