Quorum of One is intended for adult readers. But not so much this one.
Special oddball issue:
Introducing The Spoof
Some of you may already be aware of the news parody site The Spoof. There are good things and bad things about The Spoof.
Good thing: It allows anyone to submit stories. So it's easy for a wiseass like me to get exposure on the site.
Bad thing: It allows anyone to submit stories. So naturally the vast, overwhelming, crushing majority of the pieces on The Spoof are, to put it in the most diplomatic terms possible, at least funnier than bird flu. There's even one regular and high-ranked contributor who posts stories about himself and how funny he is. Ha ha ha ha ha. So you have to look for a while to find the real humor, but try "View the Writers" and check out the pieces by bhooker80, Mark Lowton, Gnarly Erik or The Noosance. Think of it as "The Onion Uncut".
Good thing: The stories on The Spoof get way-high rankings on Google News Search. I don't know how they do it but they do. So any story with a popular buzz phrase in the title will get hundreds, if not thousands, of hits. I have been posting stories under the pseudonym "Quorum of One" for a little over a month now and I've already had more than 5,000 "reads".
You can find my Spoof stories, several of which are brand new, here. And you can rate them and give me a boost in the rankings, for which I will be eternally grateful.
And please note that by "eternally" I don't mean "until I, personally, die."
I literally mean "until, like, the end of time. Or whatever."
