Spoof Publisher Dilemma: Take the Money and Run??

NY/NY Herald Tribune (Frog Edition) - Reacting violently to continued slams against the Republican Party and a journalistic pass to the Democrats' Presidential choice, Republican spokesmen lashed out at the Media Apologist for Barack Obama calling it "Pimping for a President!"

"Right now," the spokesman said, "the only straight printed news venue we're getting is from TheSpoof.com. They slam everybody equally, and that's only fair, considering the state of politics today. But The New York Times is definitely Obama's Ho!"

The spokesman pointed out several less than truthful front page stories concerning McCain in recent months, multiple hysterical rants against Governor Sarah Palin, and Pulizer Prize winning stories proven to be entirely fictitious, many plagerized from Award Winning Spoof articles.

TheSpoof.com, popular online writing forum founded by Editor/Publisher Mark Lowton, exists somewhere near a bog, but close to a mythical healing plot famous for its large rocks, in the UK. "Many of our writers journey here to get treatment for mental illness,"Lowton said, "something about chipping away at the Pillars of Politics seems to cleanse their minds!"

Writing under psneudoyms, reporters, for the most part , have been fired for insubordination from some of the world's largest Liberal newspapers, a badge of honour among the Scribes.

"We don't pay our writers much," Lowton said in typical understatement, "but what they write about is based on a deep seated conviction that wrongs need to be righted, and politicians need to be outed for the greedy, empty headed bastards they are!"

The publisher said most of the award winning writers exist by their wits on the streets of the world, both in major cities and backwater towns, reflecting the views of "regular" citizens." Some of our writers even write a lot about "shit" in the most unique way, although some of our Liberal Readers find it leaves a bad taste in their mouth. La....each to their own, I say. Can't explain some bloke's appetites," Lowton deadpanned.

Lowton discounted rumours that Australian Media Magnate Rupert Murdoch had expressed interest in purchasing TheSpoof.com after recently gobbling up The Guardian.

Lowton indicated he was contemplating an IPO for TheSpoof.com, but the recent problems on the world economic scene have made finding an investment bank willing to front the offering difficult.
