A new study on Spoof writers has thrown up some interesting conclusions.
Researchers say that spoof-writing is a "refuge for people with low self-esteem; no personal relationships or social life leading them to becoming narcissists".
"These people are basically failures. They have no life or relationships. They are social misfits steeped in insecurity. They will never make it as writers in the real world so its easy for them to sit in their dark and dreary bedsits and pretend they have a following of fans out there", said R. Sole, who headed the study conducted by the Society for Reaching Ridiculous Conclusions previously knows as the Society for Researching Absolutely Nothing.
Chastising Spoof writers for being 'basically uneducated, delusional, little people with big egos' R. Sole and co-researcher Ima Loosa said psychological examinations given to some selected Spoof writers showed that there was a major link between the level of narcissism and the number of times a day these Spoof writers checked their ratings.
Those with poor self-esteem never logged out of their Spoof sites and were obsessive compulsive in terms of monitoring their activity versus that of other Spoof rivals.
"These psychologically-disturbed deviants have become legends in their own mind & would benefit from getting out of their caves into the real world", said the team of R. Sole & Ima Loosa - fresh from their rehab spell at a well-known drug & sex addition clinic.
Asked for a comment, famous Spoofster Fuller Shite held up a middle finger.
