Top rated satirical website theSpoof.com appears all set to reject a proposal of self regulation, using Parental Advisory tags for articles which carry content featuring controversial issues such as explicit sex, drug abuse, offensive language, saucy innuendo, misleading headlines, and outright damned lies.
For once, the site's egomaniacal crew of self-opinionated writers, stood as one behind site administrator, Mike Lawton.
One revealed that if he couldn't pen pointless stories about outsized sex organs, make-believe celebrity sexual liaisons, Obama's birth certificate, football transfer rumours, nude calendars, drug and alcohol abuse, or underpant tweets, there would be nothing left to write about.
"With the possible exception of evolution v creation, or faith v science, or vampires and Disney stars. And I don't want that. I'm not rejecting the Parental Advisory scheme out of hand, but if I can't sucker the kids in - my audience is gone!"
Mike Lawton announced that there is no current or pending plan by the website to introduce warnings on its stories.
"I just don't have the time," he explained. "I'd have to flag warnings on every single thing we run. We already have a warning page system in place, for material which may cause grown men to weep in despair, and that'll do me. At least for now."
More as we get it.
