Lancaster, England – (SatireWorld.com)
The corporate site of the popular online website, the Spoof, was ransacked during the recent civil unrest that plagued numerous cities throughout England. The damages were described as extensive and appear to be revenge motivated, claims Mark Lowton, a senior partner for the firm.
The damages were unique in the sense that there were no other reports of damages to any other residence or place of business in the entire city. In fact, the nearest riot was almost 100 miles south of Lancaster.
To the police, it appears the damages were purposely targeted against the firm with the most damages done to the duplicate writer apparatus that allowed one writer to have numerous online personalities. Several files of valuable ‘Writer Points’ were reported missing and are thought to have been stolen and the resulting fire set to cover up the crime.
According to Office Spencer Pratt-Blight, “It was torched with a proper accelerent, probably gasoline. Dare say, it’s a rather proper mess too!”
Police supplied the Lowton brothers a disc from the outside surveilience cameras that show a crowd around the building moments before the blaze began. Both Mark and Paul Lowton reviewed the disc’s contents and found most were current writers on their site.
