Spoof insiders can today reflect on a job well done. Spoof writers reported many aspects of Michael Jackson' death that the investigation team would never have considered and thus inspired the police to dig deep.
"It was a report by Spoof Writer Blazing Saddle that made me look again," explains Lieutenant Dante Cervix of LAPD.
Blazing Saddle wrote about Jackson's suicide attempt during a ninja assassination bid where the physician actually administered the lethal injection".
The fact that no ninja has come forward and no evidence of his presence was discovered is held to be irrelevant. The pertinent fact is that it was a fatal jab that killed Jackson.
"Other Spoof writers reports made me look even harder at the crime" continues Lt Cervix. "Miss Monkey Woods drew my attention to the the Mark Lester paternity business and Mrs Buckwheatsbutt made me think again about the drug used in the killing".
The lieutenant continues "Mr Chamone wrote about Jackson's fathering of David and Mercy, the two Malawian children adopted by Madonna and this inspired journalism confirmed my belief that Jackson had probably been murdered by a CIA plot gone awry".
Police Commissioner Spike Murphy thanked the assembled Spoof writers and said that from now on, The Spoof would be a valuable reference source in all criminal investigations.
