image for Spoof Writers Questioned By Police Over 'Points Stealing' Accusations
Hacker? He can barely switch the computer on!

Police investigating accusations that writers on TheSpoof.com have somehow hacked into the site to enable them to 'steal' points, have interviewed two suspects.

The first, Queen Mudder, has been arrested and detained at Paddington Green Police Station under the Prevention Of Entertainment Act. She faces a 'good grilling' by officers there, and a lengthy ban from TheSpoof if found guilty.

The second person to be questioned by police, was Wonkey Moods, but he was later released without charge and scurried on back to his 'jungle hideout' deep in the Black Country.

The accusations were first levelled at the two writers in a story by Noshing Mink, a peripheral contributor to the site, with aspirations of greatness. Mr Mink had been frustrated at not being able to break into the upper echelons of TheSpoof hierarchy, and this, said the police, had got the better of him.

Before he left for Dudley Zoo, Moods told reporters outside the police station:

"I usually rate my stories to give them a kick-start. I guess I genuinely thought they were funny but, on reflection, they're probably not. Sorry."

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