A prominent Spoof writer from Manchester has appealed to the general public, and spoofing community at large, to start rating his work on the popular website.
Herr Riballs, currently languishing in 63rd spot of the most popular writers league table, moaned "I've been working my Herr Riballs off lately, trying to come up with some witty parodies and Spoof stories. This is just a sideline I fit in around a full time job and provides some therapy for my otherwise pointless existence."
Mr Riballs continued "I check daily for the five thumbs up but get nothing. It's giving me a complex, especially when I see other people's inferior spoofs rated as hilarious." And he added "I wouldn't even be rated at 63 if it wasn't for the 100 mile round trips to rate my own work on my mums' pc."
Are you willing to bolster his confidence ? Just a small donation of one thumb a week could save Herr Riballs from a lifetime on anti depressants. Two thumbs could reduce his dependence on alcohol. Five thumbs would be enough to buy him a weeks worth of smug self satisfaction.
