The only member of Occupy Dorking - Si Lee Bugga

Occupy Wall Street, Occupy London, Occupy Berlin, the group coming to be known as Occupy [Insert Place Name Here] are springing up in cities faster than Manchester City fans who were at the Manchester derby.

Finding a place to occupy that isn't already occupied by Occupy [Insert Place Name Here] is becoming harder, which is where the iOccupy app from Apple Core Labs comes in.

"The app is flawless," said App World! editor, Mac Buck. "I cannot fault the ease in which it sets up a new occupy spot, and alerts other Occupiers to the new location so that they can join."

Alternatively, a complete list of all currently occupied places is available for those that wish to join, rather than start.

"The only downside to the app," said Buck, "is the cost. It's fifteen dollars. This is quite expensive for an app like this."

Buck is philosophical about it though.

"With a charge of ninety-nine dollars a year to register an app with Apple," he said, "I suppose they have to make their money back somehow. There probably won't be that many people who want this app. I downloaded it for research purposes, and saw that I could occupy Dorking with Simon Lee Bugga, who's the only one there at the moment."

Khan Swallow, unofficially unelected leader of the Occupy [Insert Place Name Here] movement thinks that this app goes against everything that Occupy [Insert Place Name Here] stand for.

"It's an attempt by a capitalist institution to grab market share and money from those that can ill afford it," he said. "That said, it's a bloody good app, and I've got it on my iPhone, with my other mapping apps that help me find a good restaurant or the nearest Mobile Phone shop."

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