The Spoof Swami unexpectedly showed up this morning at the editorial offices of the Spoof-a well-known online news organisation. As astonished Spoof writers and staff looked up from their computers, the Spoof Swami sat down in the middle of the floor and began chanting, "Om Mani Padme Hum... Om Mani Padme Hum... Om Mani Padme Hum..."
Soon several distinguished Spoof reporters joined in the chanting. First to join the chanting was Harry Porter, Illona Ronay, and Snoz Bunsen. Before long, Shirley Knott, Chief Cheese, Morgan Truce, and Queen Mudder were chanting, "Om Mani Padme Hum... Om Mani Padme Hum... Om Mani Padme Hum..."
Coming back from their lunch break and looking a bit tipsy, EJ Moore, Phil Maggitti, and Susan Allen-Rosario were quick to catch on and joined right in.
As the chanting swelled louder and louder, Helium and the rest of the editorial staff kept busy bolting the office doors and windows to keep the rabble rousing insurgent writers in the hallway from breaking in with their nasty messages and bad vibes.
The Spoof Swami then fell silent as a beautiful smile lit up his face. "Thank you all for joining with me today," said the Spoof Swami. "I am happy that so many of you enjoyed the chanting. I must say that I tried my best to bring my message to all those insurgents out in the hallway. I showed them what to chant. I told them which over-the-counter remedy they needed to purchase. I even gave them several suggestions on how to apply it while chanting "Om Mani Padme Hum," but they seem unwilling to follow my advice. They insist on using the wrong finger. I can tell you---that will never work. They will suffer many reincarnations."
The Spoof Swami then gave one last big smile before disappearing in a big puff of magenta smoke. The energized Spoof writers returned back to their computers to put the finishing touches on their stories in time to make the late afternoon Spoof deadline.
