This story

The internet almost spectacularly collapsed at the weekend when a spate of long titled spoof articles were approved by spoof writers who were left holding the keys for the weekend.

"The lunatics have taken over the asylum" said one man Melvyn Toofeet, a web designer from Florida. "I was only browsing the site for news and pictures of Hilary Clinton but I had to wade through lots of stuff with extremely long titles and every title seemed to get longer than the last".

It is believed the onslaught quietened down on Sunday as scores of writers abandoned the spoof to 'hoof' it down to the petrol station and buy some cheap flowers for their mothers, simultaneously complaining about the ones that they bought on Valentines Day for their missus.

The weekend of madness followed the announcement in the week that the Encyclopedia Britannica announced they will cease making print versions to grow online. A spokesman said "People these days, it seems are more interested in Snooki and Jersey Shore".
