The news has been a bit pants recently and stories worthy of taking the piss out of are a bit thin on the ground.
As a writer for TheSpoof.com, one keeps an ever watchful eye on the media, awaiting that whiff of inspiration, you can have days where nothing happens worth a hoot and then all of a sudden something like Johnny Cash's house burns down and every single one us thinks "BRILLIANT! I'M A GENIUS, I will do a funny news story about Johnny Cash and his fiery ring, maybe start it off as a semi-serious piece and then slip in a few double entendres, no one else could have possible thought of that"
So you crack open a fresh word document, along with a pack of smokes to oil the wheels, and bosh out the single most funniest thing you have ever written, get to the spoof home page in preparation of pasting on the website and fcuk me if some "Mudder" hasn't already pipped you to the post.
Oh well, back to trawling my way through international news sites in the vain hope of finding some meagre news meat to pick from the fetid carcass of the bloated media sow.
