A number of well-known spoof writers have come together to raise money for charity with a sponsored Spoofathon. They aim to write a hundred spoofs each in one day to reach a fundraising target of £2000 for Limping Awareness.
Spokesman Clowny McSpoof said he had written three spoofs in the first five minutes before running out of ideas. He then wrote a spoof about not being able to think of anything to write a spoof about. He said he will go and "think up some rubbish" for the other 96 stories he needs to write today.
He emphasised the importance of the charity. All over the world, millions of people are suffering from a limp or other ailment that means they cannot walk normally. Very few people are aware of this. The charity Limping Awareness aims to tell this heartbreaking fact to as many people as possible. With the contribution from the Spoofathon, they should have enough money to be able to place a small ad in the classified pages of Readers Wives.
"I feel the quality of my spoof writing is still high," insisted McSpoof as he finished his 24th spoof about writers' block. "It's important to keep going. It's for charity."
