image for The book of Gobble-de-gook goes on sale on ebay
The rest of my army did not turn up because the message was delayed due to a missing comma

A copy of the book of Gobble-de-gook has gone on sale on Ebay after the seller noticed a story on TheSpoof.com about the book that every politician, every bureaucrat and every writer who writes fancy way out stories needs.

Any person who is new to the spoof, should be aware that it is a useful book to have if you are going to write for the spoof, because if you don't write in Gobble-de-gook style or miss a comma or two ,,,,,,,,,,, you might find one of these writers getting very upset about your punctuation!

We asked this Question ??????? in a survey of a hundred plain speaking people. Does it matter if every single comma is in a story you read or not?,,, and 90% of people said it was not that important really.

One of the people questioned Big Sammy Stewart of Glasgow said "Put it this way,if a hundred years in the future someone hands you the message to save planet earth,do you really think your going to give a rats arse if a comma is missing in the message,Not a feckin chance."

Make SPECTRUM'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.
