THESPOOF.COM, UNITED WEBSITES OF INTERNET - Mark Lowton, editor, admin, and sole coder of popular user-generated humour site, TheSpoof.com, accidentally made a coding error.

When updated the site to be compatible with HTML5 coding and video embedding, Lowton accidentally typed in the access key to the UK's Department of Records.

"Hehe," he said, shrugging his shoulders, "Well, I was tired."

After forgetting this coding loophole, spoofer Inhopeless, having had his account logged in since 12 hours ago, was first to try out this new feature.

"Well," he said, "I was expecting to be able to link my Facebook with my Spoof account. But I was redirected to Level A of the Department for Records."

The Department of Records, up until now, has remained a secret department. As the name suggests, the archive hold all data that are exempt from the Freedom of Information Act (FIA), including the real recipe for ice cream soup, the location of of every single cashpoint (ATM) machine in the UK, and the plan for rolling Britain into the metric system.

Already Lowton, seeing an opportunity to make moolah, will sell off access to the DofR to the highest bidder. The money he will raise will go towards paying the hardcore and midcore spoofers, including Inhopeless and many other people.

A spokesman for the government said: "Who? Lowton? The guy who runs that site Mr. Cameron likes so much? We'll turn a gouged eye to his activities."

Make Inhopeless's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
