Following the recent Esquire magazine cover which showed a naked supermodel adorned with the title and first 48 words of Stephen King's latest novel, there has been a call by writers at TheSpoof.com for a new feature on the site.
They are demanding parity with King and the option to write their inane rubbish onto the silky naked skin of nude models.
They suggested that writing onto naked flesh may help to get their creative juices flowing, and they made the point that anything that helped to improve the quality of the articles should be made available to them. Writer Monkey Woods said that he didn't care whether or not the photos of the models were actually used on the spoof news site. "It's the creative process that's important," he said.
Another writer, Skoob1999, immediately put his name down to write on Kiera Knightly. "I know she's an actress rather than a model, but if she's willing to do it then I'll fetch my felt-tip."
Queen Mudder, another prolific spoofer, said that she had several male models lined up, but was trying to find a pen that would write on a freshly oiled six pack.
However, some of theSpoofs' writers were concerned that the trend could limit them. Roy Turse told us "It's all right for writers like Monkey Woods, Queen Mudder and Skoob who can write concise, funny articles. I'm going to have to ask for Beth Ditto."
