UK based satirical website, TheSpoof.com, famous for stories about outsized sex organs and various political rants has been losing viewers and contributors in droves recently.
One formerly prolific writer has been reported to have upped sticks and moved to Pattaya Beach, Thailand in disgust.
Another is reported to have renounced his violent past and moved into a hippy commune in Savannah, Georgia. Where he refuses all interviews.
The reason for the upheaval is that a series of ads sponsored by google, promoting the online game Evony - a cracking cornucopia of sultry pouting fuckalicious babes has been replaced by an ad featuring...a box of tea.
"This is a step too far by the management and administrators," one disgruntled Spoof writer told us. "They take down the hot sexy chicks in favour of a box of tea. I never drink tea for God's sake! It dilutes the beer! I have been known to have the occasional wank though. But never over the computer. I tend to store the image mentally and fantasize over it later. No sticky keyboards in my gaff. Unlike some I could mention."
As a result of pulling the hot sexy chicks in favour of a box of tea and introducing time travel to its forum pages, the Spoof has been lambasted by even the tasteless British Tabloid press.
Publicist Cliff Maxford told us:
"They dropped a bollock on this one. Boxes of tea can't possibly replace hot sweaty chicks with heaving bosoms. I'm in negotiations with Mark Lowton over the cleavage and the time shifting issues, but as we haven't signed a contract yet I can't relate anything further."
