Another Sea Battle Set to Unfold as Morse Takes On Biden During Crossing Debate!

Portsmouth, England/ Shipping & Cruising News - A publicist for Spoof Writer, Morse, announced today the booking of the satirical Spoofist as featured speaker on an upcoming transatlantic crossing where he would be discussing behind the scenes details of the tepidly popular Pirate Saga, "Below Decks" featured on TheSpoof.com.

Skoob1999, LLC, Morse's unpaid PR man in the UK was particularly droll as usual when confronted about the signing.

"We've been flogging the shit out of this story, and it has been wildly popular with the 37 readers that are following along with the plot," he said, " we're hopeful that this further exposure will kick up the magazine hits a notch and we can at least reach another score of readers or so. At least we hope so. There may be a chance. I really dunno. One can only pray, really."

On a more serious note ,reports that Morse would be reading some of his more popular Spoof Articles along with favorites from leading fellow writers and crew members Buckwheatsbutt, Skoob, Jalapenoman, Fergus McCarthy and several others, have apparently raised a red flag within the Democratic Party, concerned that the biting insight into the Obama Presidency and the hypocrisy of politicians in general may cause an international incident.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reintroduced the Fairness Doctrine for a vote today in the House, to insure that should Morse read some of the Spoof's most controversial stories from the popular site, he would be counterbalanced by an official White House Spoofer. At this point, it would appear that VP Joe Biden would be the designated Fabricator, and if he had a nervous breakdown, Pointer would be in the Bull Pen.

Reports of a Morse/Biden debate has caused a sellout of the remaining cabins , and the July 30th crossing is now "wait listed."

In a bit of nostalgia Morse is said to be taking a visit to Portsmouth to stand on the deck of the original "Buggerall", recently renamed "The Victory" as a token of British sensibility and accommodation to their commitment to the EU and their brothers of all persuasions.

Morse was sentimental thinking ahead to the visit. "It will be a royal moment," he said emotionally, "we lost some really good shipmates on the last voyage, but then, they're probably in a better place today far away from the pursuit of all these pointless points!"

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