Consumer watchdog group, 'Stop It! Now!' (SIN) today released a strongly worded statement, attacking the internet publication of what has been described as 'an Enid Blyton parody' which is currently available for anyone to see, free of charge, on satirical website www.thespoof.com
SIN asserts that the parody - 'The Mystery Of Puddleby Cove - Featuring The Spiffing Six' constitutes a blatant attack on the memory of the much revered children's author, mocking her work and the ideals she adhered to in her strictly conservative life.
SIN described the 'Puddleby Cove' serial as 'a travesty' because it mocks iconic figures in children's literature, such as The Famous Five and The Secret Seven, substituting a motley band of heroes under the collective banner of: The Spiffing Six. Even though there are only four of them, five if the priapic dog in the serial, Stiffy, is included.
SIN spokesman, Derek DeBurr, told reporters:
"I'm sickened by this. I find it a national disgrace that a cheap talentless hack such as this moron can be allowed to desecrate the name of Enid Blyton on a freely available spoof website - which is filled with all manner of claptrap anyway. He has taken the high ideals of Enid Blyton, and transformed her youthfully enterprising and socially responsible characters into drug and alcohol abusing morons. And there's some swearing in it. Sex too. At least, a bit of sex. Enid Blyton never stooped to that level. All concerned with this seriously smutty project should hang their heads in shame. The cunts!"
The talentless hack behind the project, Skoob1999, told himslef:
"Any publicity is good publicity. Personally, I don't understand why that DeBurr bloke is getting his knickers in a twist. It's not like the thing's being read by half a million people, or anything. The last time I looked, it had thirteen hits, and two of them were mine - one from the library and one from the local community centre. Even the wife can't be arsed to read it. Speaks volumes that."
Indeed it does.
More as we get it.
