There was real drama today in the Jade Goody Saga, when it became apparent that, despite her name being plastered over newspaper headlines and TV screens worldwide, the omnipresent mug of Jade, the terminally-ill cancer sufferer, was "not at all known on the Meskin Border".
The claim was made by New Mexico's Jalapenonman, an amateur scribbler on satirical news website TheSpoof.com. He told others on the site:
"I don't have a clue who or what Jade Goody is."
"Okay, this site has now become the official Jade Goody fan club. It's worse than the days of Britney Spears Vagina stories or the turd stories."
Actually, he didn't add that. He said it before the first bit, about not knowing who or who Jade is, but you know what I mean, don't you?
He then went on to ask whether or not he was the only writer on the site not to have written a story about the dying star. He asked:
"Am I the only writer on here to not write a Jade Goody story?"
Finally, he made the most astonishing revelation of all, when he calmly told the readers:
"He/she/it is just not at all known on the Meskin border"
prompting other writers to frantically look around for a map or a big globe to discover just who or what the Meskin Border is/was.
