image for Spoofers write Hamlet by mistake
A typical "TheSpoof.com" reader

In a shock news announcement today, it appears that a collection of "TheSpoof.com" writers have collectively written one of Williams Shakespeare's plays, completely at random and by mistake.

"We didn't mean to do it" cried Monkey Woods, spokesperson for the collective of Spoof news writers, among them Juan, Skoob, Mudder, Mat and Mink" please don't punish us, we didn't realise what we were doing until it was too late"

Allegedly, the team of spoof writers, who are spread out across a nearby planet, called Earth, individually submit stories, and the like, to a story collector, going by the name of "TheSpoof.com". This "TheSpoof.com" then places the collected stories online for people to read. This has been going on for quite some time now and the various writers have been bashing away in their one room hovels and also writing when the mood takes them.

"It's the only joy we get out of life" said one chilli chewing scrivener, who wished to remain nameless "we work and we toil and for little or no reward, other than the thumbs up from readers and a pat on the back from fellow writers"

The accidental literary occurrence came to light during a random internet search for the bards' plays using Google's new "auto complete" tool. However, instead of being linked to the collected works of Bill Wagstaff, the surprised website searcher was taken to "TheSpoof.com" instead, which apparently has every single word that can also be found in Hamlet, not in the same order, but they are all there.

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. The collective writers have managed just the one play so far, conclusively proving that monkeys are potentially smarter than the average spoof news writer.

Make matthatt'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.
