An intellectual spoof writer today made a brave stand in protest at the way his favourite website has 'dumbed down' in recent months. The essence of the writer's argument would appear to stem from the Jade Goody era, when anybody could submit a story and get squillions of points for it.
It would appear that the writer is upset that this trend, far from gradually fading into oblivion, has in fact flourished. The principle targets of the writer's ire appear to be Susan Boyle/Britain's Got Talent, Simon Cowell, American Idol, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Barack Obama, the cast of Twilight, football clubs - particularly Hull City and Manchester United, Pirates, and Star Trek Collaborations.
The most scathing remarks were reserved for stories surrounding the world's largest penis/vagina which have proliferated recently to the extent of including the humble barnacle.
The writer didn't have a decent thing to say about the world's most cutting-edge organ, which leads one to wonder why he bothers to frequent the site in the first place.
A straw poll of our team revealed that it was felt that the writer had a valid point, and was well within his rights to observe, comment, and criticise. Indeed, his criticisms were welcomed with metaphorical open arms.
A writer of the type of article panned by the intellectual writer told us:
"We can't start setting boundaries, creating taboos, establishing 'no go' areas, or the Spoof will become just another outlet for blandness and mediocrity. If somebody wants to write about Jade Goody, Susan Boyle, the World's Largest Penis/Vagina, American teen idols, or even just write utter crap, then that should be their right."
So, there you have it. A cutting-edge report into cutting edge writing for a cutting edge publication. And we've sorted out absolutely fuck all.
More mumbo bollocking jumbo as we get it.
