The Spoof satirical website has just been dealt a severe blow after observing a white van speed up to Spoof HQ and remove their beloved editor, Mark (surname unknown but we writers call him many things), being dragged away in a straight jacket heading towards the Yorkshire Moors or Lancashire Pennines (depends on who you support)!
One Spoof writer called, anonymous (because nobody in their right mind wishes to be associated with this infamous site), witnessed the van speed away with sirens belting out in the fresh northern English air and offered the following explanation:
"Mark had certainly lost his marbles ever since the Revolution happened a few years back and has never been the same since! In all fairness he avoids sinking his gold teeth into his wooden desk, banging his head against many brick walls and frothing at the mouth after a pint or two of his favorite brew, Hugo! However, his ability to differentiate between magazine articles and news articles has sunk so far down a Yorkshire/Lancashire pothole that there was only one solution, ring up those who know better, the local Loony Bin!"
From inside his smooth, non jagged-edged, protective cell, Mark has vowed to continue as long as they remove the dripping tap from above his head and allow him access to a computer where he can throw a blind eye over the garbage or excellence (depending on where your brains are) written by his superior team of nameless, impoverished writers!
I just heard the penny drop!
