LONDON, England - Mark Lowton the owner and editor of the satirical website The Spoof celebrated the site's tenth Internet anniversary.

Mark and his brother Paul started The Spoof back on April 8, 2003. At that time they only had three writers (other than themselves).

London's Tickety Boo News Agency reporter Brompton Boxgrove stated that he was one of the writers. He revealed that he wrote using the user name of Count Crumpet.

Boxgrove noted that the two other writers were Loretta Piffinshaw, who used the pseudonym The Duchess of Diction. Ms. Piffinshaw is now a reporter for The Ta Ta For Now News Agency based in London.

And the third writer was a rather arrogant individual who wrote using the nom de plume of Mr. T-Shirt.

Lowton informed Mr. Boxgrove that he eventually had to ban Mr. T-Shirt due to the fact that his stories about the Royal family began to become more and more intimately explicit.

In one of Mr. T-Shirt's stories titled Buck House Musings, he satirized various Royal romps including those of Prince Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Lord Prattleford, Countess Cindy, Sir Sal, Prince Philip, and Queen Elizabeth herself.

Mark disclosed that Mr. T-Shirt would go on to become a very successful music producer on both sides of the pond whose real name is Simon Cowell.

But of course all of that is now simply water under the London Bridge as Mr. Lowton was given a tenth anniversary party by Prince William and his astoundingly sexy wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The celebration was held at The Friar Tuck Hotel in Waterloo. A crowd of about 700 attended the festivities in the hotel's Sherwood Forest Party Room.

Some of the quests in attendance included Paul McCartney, Amanda Holden, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones, Pixie Lott, Manchester United's Chicharito, Cheryl Cole, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, and Petula Clark.

Flying in from America to attend the festivities were George Clooney and his gorgeously sensuous girlfriend Stacy Keibler, Ryan Seacrest, Barbara Walters, Shakira, and Vice-President Joe Biden.

Music for the party was provided by The Dungeon Dwellers of Windsor Castle and England's most famous hip hop band, Blokes 2 Chaps.

SIDENOTE: Mark Lowton announced to the assembled group that he was thrilled to inform them that he had finally decided to open up his own pub. He told the guests that it is located two blocks from Buckingham Palace and is called Ye Olde Bloomin' Pub.

SPECIAL NOTE: I want to wish Mr. Lowton the very best. Michelle and I enjoy reading the Spoof stories. Keep up the good work. And as they say in parts of New Hampshire..."Cherrio mate!"
-President Barack Obama
