Spoof writers the world over today were united in grief at the reported loss of a much esteemed colleague. The US Coastguard held out little hope for the survival of talented Spoof contributor 'Chamone'
It is believed that Chamone entered the toilet of a 747 aircraft Mid Atlantic after visiting a well known Spoof writer in Savannah, Georgia, got his knickers in a twist and was sucked out of the window.
There seems little hope of a satisfactory outcome.
"Chamone disappeared off the radar and out of the top twenty all in one savage hit," a tearful Jesus Budda told us from his Broadmoor cell-erm-residence. "There's just no justice."
Speaking from his palatial mansion, sandwiched between those of Bono and The Edge, Spoof legend Fergus McCarthy told us:
"I can't speak. It's a tragedy. I'm lost for words. Poor Chamone getting sucked off like that. Terrible terrible business. A great loss to us all."
"She had a horny avatar!" Spoof writer Jalapenoman, from Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA enthused, before becoming sombre and whispering in a cracked voice: "Guess it's all over now..."
Speaking from his squalid room in a slum in the Portsmouth area, Spoof writer Skoob, was surprisingly philosophical on the subject. Once we'd roused him from yet another alcohol induced stupour, he told us with surprising clarity:
"It's a fuggin shame. Young girl cruelly taken away from us. It's a tragedy. Getting sucked off a plane like that. She always said she liked going down, but I don't think she ever quite had that in mind. Memories of the Guide To Scunthorpe Zoo in the Magazine section will live with me to my dying day."
Spoof writer Duncan Whitehead was too distraught to comment.
"It's almost like she flew off somewhere and we lost her. A real tragedy," Spoof legend BuckwheatsButt said, fighting back tears.
Reports that Chamone's trainer bra has been recovered by the Coastguard from the Atlantic have yet to be confirmed.
The Queen Mudder sent an email of condolence to poor brave Duncan. Allegedly.
From a community wracked by grief, we shall respectfully send more as we get it.
RIP Chamone July2009-A bit of August 2009.
WE ARE ALL HONOURED TO HAVE KNOWN YOU (not KNOWN in a Biblical sense. Obviously. Except Duncan.) YOU WILL BE SORELY MISSED.
