Writers for satirical online website theSpoof.com were threatening to pack away their keyboards in disgust last night after the run of popular Spoofer and forum philosopher Fergus McCarthy as Featured Writer came to a premature end.
"I'm really angry about this," one Spoofer told us. "I shall jolly well stop my tomspoofery if they don't reinstate Fergus immediately. He's the voice of logic in a world of insanity. Well, when I say the voice, he's one of them. His mates Duncan and Monkey also make sense. Some of the time. Or part of it."
It is widely believed that Fergus's links with his dad - God - have seen the site through some stormy times, and he has built up a dedicated cult following, of cultists.
"I'm not having this," one irate Spoofer fumed. "We'd all be lost without Fergus. I mean; what's gonna 'appen when we gets to the Red Sea? I can't see Queen Mudder or Bargis Tryhol parting that fucker. We all need a Fergus."
Mr McCarthy was unavailable for comment as he was up on the roof developing a death ray in order to kill Thierry Henry, and building a rooftop beer fridge veranda for fine evenings.
God said his son can do what the fuck he wants, going on to say that He disowned Fergus years ago.
Due to stubbornness. And something to do with Tesco mobiles.
More as we get it.
