The claim made by a Spoof writer that a pubic hair was found in Bath has created a storm that threatens the future of Spoof.
'We have been searching for this pubic hair high and low' said a frustrated local policeman 'it is not a pleasant job, but somebody has to do it.'
In vain Spoof representatives tried to assure the people of Bath that the reference to a pubic hair in bath meant a bath where you wash, not the town Bath where you meet Jane Austen.
But once a story is out in the media reporters do not always check their sources. The story has spread and cancellations for the best Bath Hotels are mounting as tourists fear coming across the pubic hair.
Young lads in Bath have even resorted to removing pubic hairs and dropping them in the tea cups of prim and proper ladies who scream in horrified fear when they see the object swimming in their tea.
'First Somerset get pipped on the post in the Championship cricket, now this slur on Bath that will ruin our reputation' complained a prominent Baathist at his prayers.
The motto is: Be careful and remove your pubic hairs from the bath after using it.
