The FBI announced it has been spying on writers for The Spoof after being given a presidential order to clamp down on satire.

A spokesperson for the FBI today told journalists "The President is tired of people lampooning him and his policies. He has ordered anyone using satire, mockery, parody or irony to undermine his wishes watched 24/7."

When asked if this was unconstitutional and against the first amendment by a journalist from the LA times the spokesperson stated "The President has decided to ignore the constitution and is doing whatever he wants to. You got a problem with that?"

The American Association for freedom of speech today said that it was fully behind the president as it was "about time someone clamped down on people making jokes about a great world leader like the president" just before its headquarters was raided by the FBI who took their statement to be a joke.

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

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
