image for Spoof Writers That Post Parody Stories Get Rounded Up In China
Oh look. It's bicyclists in China. How quaint.

BEIJING- Once again the communist leaders in China are flexing their muscles and this time they are going after a specific type of dissident; people that write for 'The Spoof'- a website parody tabloid where writers take everyday news stories and turn them on their heads.

Mr. Wang Xao Pang, Chinese undersecretary of culture, says that it is necessary to imprison those who "..besmirch the integrity of the fifth estate" by writing, "...obnoxious drivel that pollutes the fabric of our souls." However, he continued, "...but I do have a soft spot for people who write derogatorily about Britain's Got Talent and that ridiculous Broadway tune singing poseur Scottish woman...bwahahahahaha."

Several popular china-based Spoof writers, such as Lyle Lovett Wears Ladies Undergarments, Prawn Cocktails For Two, and Roto Rooter Does Angioplasty, have been taken into custody by the culture minister's brown shirts.

No word has been given on their conditions, but it is early yet, as all this happened just this morning and it takes some time before state sanctioned imprisonment begins to translate into barmy behaviour, even though the imprisoned are already halfway there.
