A Spoof writer today, had to be rushed to a local hospital, after lacerating the insides of his mouth with his own sharp tongue.
The writer (who can not be named) was preparing to bestow a quick witted Spoof article on the shoulders of Louis Walsh, a donkey and an X-Factor contestant, when the incident occurred.
So fired up was he, that his tongue literally slashed his mouth to ribbons.
"There was blood everywhere," said Beryl, the writers wife (whose name has been changed for legal reasons), "he was thrashing about and in so much pain. But it's his own fault, he shouldn't be so viscious to his poor victims."
Katie Price, who has been at the mercy of many of the Spoofers rants, told us "it serves him right! He never lets up, always making fun of me and my family! I won't be sad to see him quiet for a while. I'm naturally orange. This isn't fake tan."
The Spoof writer is resting well, and doctors expect him to make a complete recovery, although a local blacksmith has been employed to file the edges of his tongue, to a more sensible level.
