After a fiercely contested two-horse race, Oxbridge has scooped the September Writer of the Month award for his story ‘Pope admits: ‘Actually I am the Antichrist’. Obviously too far ahead of its time when we originally published it in July 2009, the story has suddenly benefitted from the world progressing enough to finally recognise its revelatory message and has since gathered enough followers to become our most-read article last month. Congratulations to the prodigal son who nets himself a fatted calf, a NewsBiscuit mug and an eternity’s stay in hell.
Commiserations to newcomer jamsieoconnor whose enormously popular story ‘Rally driver admits he has no idea what co-driver is talking about’ was only a short distance behind Oxbridge’s and on any other month would almost certainly have bagged the award. Honourable mentions also to willedwards (‘Violent protests outside French embassies after Middleton pictures published’) and Perks (‘Advertisement Feature: Get your commemorative pair of ‘Invasion of Privacy’ Royal jugs’) who finished high up September’s hit parade.
Thanks for all your excellent contributions. We hope that no one will be offended by tomorrow’s front page photo of Muhammad and Kate Middleton both topless. We found it in Sir Jimmy Savile’s collection.
