image for Infection that Possibly Killed Dinosaur Sue Spreads to Spoof Forum
Was it a sore throat that made Sweet Sue's breath not so sweet?

An intrepid Spoof reporter had just returned yesterday from a Chicago Museum where scientists had found some evidence that Sue, the Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton, may have died eons ago of a throat infection.

The industrious reporter, who loves dinosaurs as well as anybody or anything named Sue, had handled the dinosaur's remains and even looked down the throat of the dinosaur as he sang "Sweet Sue" a few times. Next stop: the Spoof Discussion Forum where the reporter -- with the beginnings of a sore throat and cough -- handled computers, coffee cups, pens, pencils, and porno magazines. All popular items.

By today, dozens of Spoofers have become infected. Coughing, sneezing, sore throats, and fever now dominate life in the Spoof Discussion Forum. One "Mr. Clean" Spoofer, not yet infected, came to the Forum armed with powerful disinfectant soap, hand sanitizer, and Lysol. This was greeted with laughter and catcalls. "Talk about closing the barn door after the germs have escaped," one Spoofer mumbled.

As the throat infection spreads, even more bad breath than usual fills the air at the Forum. And that's mingling with the body odor, stale smoke, and rotting food. One Spoofer complained: "I'd like to spend the day in the Forum. But the smell? Oy!"

Meanwhile, discussion in the forum continues as to how to handle the infection-bearing Spoof reporter. Suggested solutions range from "Ban that Typhoid Mary bum for life" to "Send him to Martha Stewart for counseling on how to give himself a good scrub before he sets foot in Spoof headquarters." Updates to follow............
