Fears are growing of an international conspiracy against Spoof by unknown dark forces, once spoken of by the Queen.
Their aim is to make the news so terrible that satire and humour cannot get an edge into the world perspective.
Japan is a case in point. To create so much damage and mayhem to stop Spoof writers in their tracks is mind boggling. On top of this the crisis in Libya and all the excitement about no flies in Africa has left humour floundering.
How can you joke about such terrible news?
One solution is to examine the basis of the conspiracy. It involves Gaddafi, Japanese nuclear installations and the campaign to wipe out flies in Africa. What do these things have in common? Seemingly nothing, but nuclear power is in conflict with oil and only one can win plus flies are very annoying and are only any use on trousers.
'Without flies' said a UN Ambassador 'I would have to pull my trousers down every time I wanted a pee!' Clearly this cannot be allowed to contine. Laughter must be brought back to our lives or we would all die of misery induced by a media who are also part of the conspiracy.
