Extract from Story:
A writer on a satirical news website who complained that he had never featured in the site's 'Featured Writer' slot, finally got his wish tonight, when he was briefly featured as the 'Featured Writer'. Dr. Bill Ingsgate, 81, and holder of twelve doctorates, is a veteran of TheSpoof.com, having been a member since 22 February 2010, and has written in excess of 800 stories. Indeed, now that I'.....

Just trying to get you a bit more exposure.

I don't know how that system works, either, but it seemed like you were long overdue for a turn.

I’m sorry I missed it, but I’d like to congratulate the good Doctor for recognition well earned.

Dear Doctor Billingsgate,

I am so pleased for you.

If you want to really hit the big time may I humbly suggest that you do a hundred laps of your garden? It worked for Colonel Tom Moore over here. He made £39,000,000 for the NHS and he's an international superstar these days, albeit a bit deaf.

Kindest Regards

Skoob.

RIP

To all who showed support: Thank you.

I missed my moments in the sun. Inadvertently. of course, my brief exposure to immortality went unnoticed by me.

If even Monkey Woods can’t break the code, that leaves only Mark as the culprit.

Who knows what evil lurks in Mark’s heart? Only the Shadow knows; but he ain’t talking.

So Mark, if you read this, please respond with a detailed explanation of what algorithm is used to pick “Featured Writer.”

Best regards to my friends,

Dr. B
