The announcement of yet another overly-sarcastic, satirical news blog was made today, and subsequently completely ignored by the thronging masses on the World Wide Web. A brief presentation to signify the launch was made at 1pm to an empty press conference, by new blog The Oracle Speaks, despite the fact that it is commonly agreed that the satirical blog space has already been cornered by a two or three leading websites, all of which are much better and widely respected than the new blog will ever be.
The Oracle Speaks‘ editor, who was presumably too embarrassed to give his own name, as he asked to remain anonymous said:
“I can’t believe nobody turned up to the press conference. We put on a cracking spread. Does anybody want a sausage roll?”
The Oracle Speaks is expected to trundle along over the coming weeks and months, held together by the editor’s intermittent entries, before slowly dying a death when he eventually finds something else more interesting to bang on about and finally focuses his attention on that instead.
