A joke recycling company based in Goole have posted record profits following a dramatic upturn in business fuelled by requests from contributors to satirical websites such as theSpoof.com for new angles on old jokes.
Managing Director, Squeaky Nutjob - who changed his name by deed-poll two years ago - has hired a staff of fifty to recycle old jokes, which are then sold on to website contributors.
He told us:
"Business is booming. We've had a run on minor celeb stories, rehashed Mrs Slocombe type 'pussy' gags, and of course, that staple of satirical website contributors, the outsized or undersized penis. Our top client comes from theSpoof.com website but we can't name him because Skoob1999 said it would cause him unnecessary embarrassment."
We tried to contact Skoob1999 but he was in bed recovering from an all night marathon of recycled story posting.
Skoob1999 - SHAME ON YOU!
More as we get it.
