Rupert Murdocks News International have stunned the Stock Exchange by offering an undisclosed sum for the highly acclaimed website TheSpoof.com.
"We were first aware of The Spoof when one of our news reporters whilst researching out a news story came across The Spoof" said Clinton McClinsey, Chief Editor and General Manager of The Sun.
"We were flabberghasted..." he ranted, with nostrils flaring and spittle running down his cheeks. "The Spoof is dangerous. Our features editor is totally crest fallen when he discovered that The Spoof was not in fact a new media resources service, but was in fact a website peddling distortions and twista of the truth.That's our job, and we are not happy about it!"
Todays Sun front cover carried the story "Sun spoofed by spoofer" and admitted it had been lazy in checking out stories.
"It is unacceptable that The Spoof should be allowed to publish completely false and inaccurate stories made up on the spot and not containing a shred of truth. Again, that's our job!" he ranted.
He also pointed out that TheSpoof.com's page three girl was a dog, but FiFI, currently resting after winning the Tour De France sprint, said that the Sun was for people who didn't care about anything except the size of the page three girls boobs.
The Spoof's management have declined to comment.
