A writer has told of his "total elation" at becoming one of the foremost contributors on a satirical news website he frequents, and readers of his stories now account for an incredible 2% of the site's total readership!
Harold Meaner said he was "overjoyed" at the news, although percentages can be misleading.
He explained that, if the total readership had been, for example, 2 million readers, then his 2% would be 20,000, a significant figure, I'm sure you'll agree.
If, however, there had only been 100 visitors to The Spoof's stories that day, his share would have been reduced to just two readers, and both of those would probably have been people who had accessed his material by mistake while googling something on the internet.
Still, from acorns do oak trees grow, and he was tolerably pleased with his achievements, this morning.
"I'm hoping I can get a higher percentage by Christmas, and will be giving it my all in support of that endeavour," he said.
Meaner is currently in 7th place in the Top Writer rankings, which means that he is in 7th place in the rankings, but little else.
