The prestigious Lowton Trophy, awarded to each Featured Writer

A prominent Spoof writer was said to be 'inconsolable' today when he finally reached the pinnacle of his writing career by being inaugurated into the Spoof Hall of Fame as Featured Writer. The contributor, who cannot be named for legal reasons, immediately fired off an article condemning the decision because it clashes with a World Cup football match between the USA and England.

"Many of the readers of The Spoof are from the USA or the UK, and they'll be watching the match," the writer stated, "Even those from other countries will probably watch the game as it's one of the first in the competition and it's on a Saturday. Nobody will notice who is Featured Writer today."

So incensed was the writer that he threatened legal action against the site. Editor Mark Lowton subsequently issued a statement outlining the site's response. "We have decided on this occasion to re-schedule this particular contributor for another, less controversial time. In the meantime, Roy Turse has agreed to be a stand-in for the Featured Writer slot on the basis that he would never qualify under normal circumstances. The Featured Writer system will resume normal operation tomorrow."

Make Roy Turse's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
