image for Man Receives Death Threat Over Narcissistic Material
Yikes!

A man who was accused of being overly-narcissistic on a satirical news website, has received death threats threatening him with death, I can reveal.

Myke Woodson, 55, said he had also been accused not only of being overly-narcissistic, but overtly-narcissistic as well, on TheSpoof.com.

"It never rains, but it pours!" he said, shaking his head, clearly exasperated.

Woodson explained that, as the things that happen to him, happen to him, then, writing about those things necessarily entails being narcissistic, but, he argues, in an 'indirectly and unintentionally narcissistical' way.

"I don't really see myself as a narcissisticalist, but, I suppose, writing about my adventures all the time, does leave me open to anti-narcissisticalness from certain quarters."

The Englishman said that writing satire about authority figures, governments and political ideologies was "all very well", but required a level of understanding of those topics that he does not possess, and that he feels "on safer ground" writing about the daily gubbins in his own sphere of activity and influence.

"In the final analysis," he said, "I suppose it's a bit like what me mam used to tell me: "if you're talking about yourself, you're leaving everybody else alone" That just about sums it up."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
