No More 'More As We Get It' Any More.

It has been decided by unanimous agreement that the tagline 'More as we get it' is to be axed with immediate effect from all satirical websites.

The tagline, which has been used prolifically in recent years has been dubbed as politically incorrect, archaic, and misrepresentative of internet policy.

Supporters of the tagline claim that they gain a strange sensation of comfort and familiarity when they read the words 'More as we get it' at the end of what may have been a harrowing satirical item, but opponents counter that it is negative, boring, misleading, and predictable.

It has been revealed that a team of bagpipe stitchers from Dumfries in south west Scotland have been tasked with finding an alternative tagline to 'More as we get it' and have been giving serious consideration to 'We'll tell you more as it comes in' and 'We'll let you know.'

One satirist, who refused to be identified, told us:

"I don't know how I shall cope without 'More as we get it.' It's kind of become like a part of the landscape, or like the furniture in your house. I shall miss it terribly. It shan't feel the same writing a pack of lies without signing off with 'More as we get it.' My life will lose all sense of purpose without those five seemingly innocuous sounding words. Excuse me...could you please turn that thing off..."

At least we can rest assured that the bagpipe stitchers will be working hard to find a suitable replacement for 'More as we get it.'

Look out for the sparks. They will fly.

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