One of The Spoof's writers today had a story published which was about Susan Boyle's new home.
In a record period of about 2 hours - give or take a minute or 2 - this story racked up an amazing 144 views without even getting 'one star'.
The views are 'growing in number' as I type.
There is either a 'glitch' in the figures or someone is playing 'mind games' with the writer in question.
That's ok with her though, because it means she has been noticed by a loony or two. She is quoted as saying, "If that is the case, 'thank you'. It's made my day. I didn't think I'd get up someone's nose as quickly as I have.
"It took me much longer to do so on the first Susan Boyle fansite I joined, and was eventually banned from. Oops! So sorry about that dangling participle - I mean FROM WHICH I WAS EVENTUALLY BANNED. Don't you just hate those dangly bits?
"Oh, by the way, I could just go and rate it a 5 star piece myself like some of the other writers do when they want to get lots of points. I'm just not that kind of paranoid person. Those writers are more to be pitied than scorned don't you think? Oh look, it's over 160 now. Still not a star in site. Only ME."
