The Spoof goes underground - At 2:30am yesterday, The Spoof`s offices were raided by Google shock troops and its servers confiscated in the ongoing 'War on Spoof'. The scene was horrific: pages upon pages of Funny were trampled, squashed and burned; pocket protectors lay strewn across the floor in a maelstrom of gut-wrenching disorganisation and the soulless eyes of the Google-bots will doubtlessly haunt the dreams of those that were present for years to come.
Yesterday, The Spoof lost its innocence.
Where do we go from here? After much wrangling the upper echelons of Spoofdom, strings were pulled and power removed to the militant spoofers spoofing it up on the frontiers of civilisation. With the help of these impetuous souls, a cave high in the alps and a goat-shit powered generator, 'The Spoof' continues - phased but unbroken.
"We will build great warrens", said a source known only as 'The Fox' through a voice scrambler. "We will create an empire, here: Spoofdom will be founded atop mountains amongst the Gods. Nobody will hold comedy ransom! From corporate undead in their ivory towers to the fundamentalists and thought police: Funny will triumph".
A spokesman for Google, Roulinda Webb, made the following statement today: "Google can confirm that it raided the offices of the The Spoof early this morning with the endorsement of a warrant. This is part of an ongoing struggle to protect our webcrawlers, whose algorithms are unable to process the farcical material found at The Spoof, and they consequently become listless and depressed, stop eating and eventually die. This war is for them, and it will continue until these Spoofers cease and desist".
Key officials at The Spoof, however, maintain their innocence and cite a steady history of charitable donations to the SPCW (Society for the Protection from Cruelty to Webcrawlers) as evidence of this.
The conflict continues.
