image for Jade Goody forum causes Internet to crash
Internet down for 7 hours

The Internet was shut down for an incredible 7 hours earlier this month following Jade Goody's announcement that she was going ahead with her cancer treatment during the panto season.

Engineers working frantically to discover the cause, found that too many users were logged on at the same time, overloading the infrastructure and crashing the system. On the UK's biggest Jade Goody forum - Digital Lie, messages of admiration for Jade's brave stance peaked at over 2,000 per minute.

The Prime Minister Gordon Brown was informed and is said to be 'intensely concerned'. His private secretary has contacted the website, but both of the forum moderators were still at school.

Last night a spokesman for Digital Lie was still unavailable for comment, however their popular and charismatic poster known only as J.W. spoke exclusively to the Spoof.

"The main problem stems from Jade's detractors imagining that she either knows or cares about their opinions. Of course, everyone's entitled to an opinion - but it is their belief that we are also entitled to it that is irritating"

Jade Goody is currently playing in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Theatre Royal, Lincoln.

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