Some people have come across a website that is supposedly for spoofs, lampoons and satire called TheSpoof.com, and indeed very occasionally you may come across a humourous and satirical article that makes you smile and pick up your keyboard and sharpen it up and get writing yourself -

but at least 90% of the articles in this site are not only not spoofs or satire but are also poorly written and maybe full of grammatical errors, like this sentence. And these articles are completely unoriginal and about the same subjects and uninteresting 'celebrities' over and over and over.

A few of TheSpoof.com writers make a living writing and then go to that site to write a bit of silliness to poke fun at famous people and to lampoon news events and politicians. The reason that most people reading the articles there don't rate most of them is because they don't deserve to be rated.

If writers thinking that they can take an idea that has already been written about by many other people, make up quite a funny headline and then just say what has already been said about it in badly-written English and then get rated for it then they can - by other writers they know, but nobody else. The rating system is great because writers know when they've probably given birth to a turkey when hardly anyone views it and it doesn't get a single rating.

This writer of spoof stories thinks that TRY, HARDER, OR LEAVE THE SATIRE AND SPOOFS TO PEOPLE THAT KNOW HOW TO WRITE THEM AND STOP FILLING THIS SITE UP WITH DROSS ABOUT BODY PARTS AND THE ZZZZ-FACTOR might sum it up quite well.

Hey ho, off to not read more stories about Americans I have never heard of and parts of the body. Unlikely to need my stars, then.

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