Written by Chuck Terzella

Spoof Editors are reportedly said to be shocked to find out that none of the stories writer Chuck Terzella has posted on the prestigious news site were true. Paul Lowton of the Spoof has said, " God, this is worse than the Jason Blair scandal at the New York Times last year. I mean, you expect the Times to lie, but the Spoof holds itself to a much higher standard. This could devastate us."

Lowton continued, "I was wondering where he got his information, but it just seemed to be so...true. You mean George Bush is really a good guy and the war in Iraq is going well? None of what he wrote was based in fact? That little wanker sure blew sunshine up our skirts."

Lowton said he's gone back and reviewed every article ever posted on the news site with an eye to determining their accuracy and found out that absolutely none of the stories on the website were true. As a result, the Spoof will have to cease publication for a second time this year. Lowton was heard to exclaim from his office in Spoof Tower, "Lies! All of these stories are lies! What the hell is going on? People are treating my site like it's some sort of...I don't know, satire magazine or something. I'm ruined!"

Mr. Terzella has gone into hiding at 310 Park Place in Utica, New York, second floor, fourth bedroom on the right. Apparently it was Mr. Terzella's article about The National Education Association that triggered the probe. In the story Mr. Terzella said that Osama bin Laden was the president of the powerful American teachers union. It was a teacher from Plano, Texas, Mrs. Mary Muffvirgin, who contacted Mr. Lowton to explain that bin Laden was not the NEA head; it was Charlton Heston.

Other Spoof writers, specifically JJ Jogolo, Dale Petrie and Blind Fool have blamed Mr. Terzella's slip for ruining a good thing and have hired ex Kray gang member Leslie (Killer Penis) Bofton to go after him and "do a nasty on his bum".

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