HOLLYWOOD, CA - A spoof writer so far only known by his screen name, Vow of Obstinance, has been cast by The San Francisco Onion to fill a role once played to perfection by Bill Murray.
In this computer-screen, spoofed adaptation, Vow of Obstinance wakes up on the morning of February 2 and goes to his computer to check the activity on his stories at TheSpoof.com. He sees that an article titled "Man With World's Largest Penis and Woman With World's Largest Vagina Axed by TV Channel" is top story of the day, then goes about his business.
The next morning, he wakes up to check his activity and finds "Man With World's Largest Penis and Woman With World's Largest Vagina Axed by TV Channel" is still number one. Nothing too terribly odd about that, he thinks, until it slowly begins to dawn on him that he is reliving the same day over again! He goes to bed that night dumbfounded, not having been able to convince anyone what is happening to him.
On the morning of the third day, when "Man With World's Largest Penis and Woman With World's Largest Vagina Axed by TV Channel" is still top of the heap, Vow of Obstinance begins to loathe the story, hating it more with each passing day. Nevertheless, he remains trapped in an endless loop, forced to relive February 2 over and over no matter what spoof material he contributes, never able to change his future.
Will this classic Bill Murray movie survive adaptation to the computer screen? Many seem to think so.
"The 'Groundhog Day' twist is funny because it's so totally true," said one spoof reader. "I still wet the bed when the man with the world's largest penis and the woman with the world's largest vagina supposedly got axed from that f**king TV channel. Now, I'm a concert pianist who does ice sculpture on the side. Are they still out of work? I mean, get over it already."
