image for Mark Lowton Upset No Writers Show Up To Conference
He thinks that African Spoof Writers have good taste... er... taste good.

Mark Lowton, the owner and editor of The Spoof, an on-line humour magazine, scheduled a conference for this year for all of the Spoof Writers living in a geographic area. Invitations were mailed, hotel reservations were made, entertainment was booked, meals were scheduled, and hookers were hired.

Lowton, however, was upset to discover that no one showed up. "I took time off and used all of my vacation/holiday time to travel to Nigeria and no one even showed up! None of my writers had the decency to be here! I didn't ask anyone to R.S.V.P. but come on!"

"If these writers think that I am coming back to Africa for workshops on writing or instruction on perfecting their craft, they have got another thought coming to them! Next year, I'll go to China or Vietnam where I know I'll be appreciated!"

The one Spoof writer on the African continent, Henman (who is also the bastard son of a Spoof writer who calls himself Jesus Budda) could not be reached for a comment as he was eaten by a lion in July of 2009 and has not written anything since then.
