image for TheSpoof.com, World News Outlets Strike April Fools' Deal
So, I'll Be Reporting on Youth Crime Here, While Nick Robinson Off the Beeb is Making Fun of David Cameron? Perfect

BERLIN - At a meeting between Mark, the owner of user-generated site theSpoof.com, and several major news outlets, a deal was made.

The BBC, CNN, Reuters, AP, AFP, and a consortium of major newspapers and others agreed that for April Fools' Day, they would 'write Spoof', and The Spoof will 'write news'.

The Spoof, being a near-worldwide organisation has many an upper-hand in news reporting, has been provided with £100mn to report on the news of that day, including the cost of cameras, news vans and other equipment.

Inhopeless, a prominent Spoofer said this:

"Cool," he said. "So, while I'm on holida... I mean in New York reporting on something, my paid counterparts in real news are writing stuff about socks and terrible entertainment stories? Well, great."

Other Spoofers are not so happy.

"What? Apparently that Inhopeless geezer yeah, is like, sending me to Wolverhampton?" said Arif Kurdina. "Stupid nerd."

As of press time, Spoofers were claiming expenses on giant TVs.

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