image for Jade Goody's ghostly image captured on Web Cam attacking Spoof Writer -- Is she seeking revenge on the media?
R.I.P. Jade Goody and fare-thee-well on your flight with angels

London, England - In the silent Web Cam tape footage, a somewhat ironically befitting contrasting epitaph to the passing of reality TV star, Jade Goody, an unknown spoof writer can be seen sitting at his computer writing a satire about her much-anticipated death covered almost extensively, if not some say, obsessively, by the UK media.

Unbeknownst to the spoof writer, who is busy typing away at his keyboard laughing at his own jokes, somebody (or perhaps something) draped in a white bed sheet with two eye holes cut into it and a the name "Jade Goody" written with a black Sharpie marker on the front, enters his room, creeping up behind him.

Suddenly, in the reflection of his computer screen, the spoof writer catches a glimpse of the image of the bed sheet specter looming up behind him, rising up its arms. Only, it is too late, as he turns around to face the phantom, its hands are already wrapped around his throat.

"The Web Cam's digital image begins to deteriorates after that because of all the rapid movement," said a police officer from Scotland Yard called to investigate the apparent paranormal assault and battery. "See, there. The pixels are all distorted."

Back on the Web Cam tape, in between the distortions, a struggle ensues with the poltergeist taking the worst of it. Back-and-forth the bed sheet ghost of Jade Goody is tossed about the room like a rag doll: first thrown to the floor, then up against the wall and finally smashed onto the spoof writer's computer keyboard.

"Poor woman," said the policeman. "Seems like she couldn't catch much of a brake in this life, or the one after either. Well, except for her reality TV career, but look how that turned out."

"We could be dealing with the power of suggestion," said Mark Lowton, administrator of TheSpoof.Com. "A guilty conscious of a spoof writer trying to express remorse for having taken a bad joke too far. Nah. But just the same, I'm not taking any chances. I called a Catholic priest to fumigate any unwanted sprits from the joint, so I better get busy now and go empty out the liquor cabinet before he gets here."

In the final images from the Web Cam, the spoof writer momentarily leaves the room, returning with a wheelbarrow, which he uses to place the still motionless ghost of Jade Goody in. Wheeling it off somewhere, before returning to his in front of his computer to continue writing his spoof: "Jade Goody's ghostly image captured on Web Cam attacking Spoof Writer -- Is she seeking revenge on the media?"
