Google, the biggest internet search engine in the Universe, has taken control of little-known satirical news website TheSpoof.com, and has announced 'major changes' to its administration, says a report.
Owners of Google, John and Jason Google of Ohio, told a news conference yesterday, that the site would be 'revamped', and that some of The Spoof's writers would not be retained, fuelling speculation that (CENSORED BY ADMINISTRATORS) would be dropped from its roster.
Google spokesman Albert Hatchet, moved quickly to dispel any rumours that might be brewing, by saying:
"Turd stories will no longer be tolerated. Funny, satirical news stories, well-thought-out social commentary, and comedic slant are fine, but shit no longer sells. Contributors should take note."
Reaction to the takeover has been slow in coming, many writers still in bed, but there is bound to be criticism of the Spoof's administrators, because there always is.
One writer, who did not want to be named, said:
"I thought shit still sold. I need a rethink."
