[This topic is LOCKED]
Please discuss at will.
Extract from Story:
NEW YORK CITY – The National Institute of Births has just released statistics that show that the nation can expect a huge spike in baby births in January (nine months from now).
NIB Executive Director, Dr. Grover Kimkullen, said that with the new ‘stay-in-your-home’ policy that has been put out by President Trump, there is going to be an awful lot of couples engaging in the matrimonial merengue.....

Would anyone be offended if I critiqued this one?
Nothing personal, of course, and I welcome all others to do the same with the fluff that spouts from this apple, but this one I was actually kicking around some ideas.
Most of the story is not spoof, but perhaps fact, there will be a spike in the number of births in nine months, and yes, that is January. Okay, kind of mundane, yes?
The punch line is the last paragraph, the RELATED STORY. That should have been the lede. I was going to do something like:
Be prepared for an assault of Southern Double Names (you know, Billie Joe, Anna Belle, and so on), like "Viral Vern" and "Mona Corona" and "Cooter Covid" and so on.
Alabama just passed a law that states "If your sister gives birth from you humping her during isolation, you cannot collect a support check claiming it was a 'relief effort'."
Recently divorced couples in Alabama are not allowed to refile as separate brother and sister individual filers if the divorce happened due to isolation requirements in 2020.
"Covid-19" does NOT mean you have to wait until she is 19 to marry your sister!
That kind of shite.
I just hate to see a missed opportunity, as now if I were to write something like the above it would feel like I was ripping the original off.
Any opinions expressed here are purely the opinions of the contributors and are not necessarily the opinions of The Spoof, its staff or the original writer of the spoof news/parody/satire story.
