The Reverend T.J. McCorkle of Louisburg, NC issued a statement this morning stating that after extensive research over a period of twenty years the word "fart" in a spoof headline has exceeded the word "booger"as the leading headline grabber in spoof articles. Reverend McCorkle has consistently ranked in the top ten of the world's spoof writers.
"Twenty years ago," states McCorkle, "the use of the word "booger" was not only the leading headline grabber but a guaranteed laugh line on the playground or the battlefield.The use of the word "fart" was confined to the fourth grade Boys Bathroom or the K of C lodge. No more! "Fart" has come out of the closet and into the mainstream from the bridge club to the Junior League! "Booger" has lost its luster and has gone the way of the buggy whip and doctors making house calls.
McCorkle concluded his statement, "For myself it has become a hard choice in my spoof writing. Frankly, in my heart I am still a " booger" man but sadly, in the end, I am---and will always be---an old fart. Alas, poor "booger," I knew ye well!"
