DFTFC bought by the BBC

Written by: Hungry Caterpillar Published on: 01 Apr 2000

It was announced this morning that popular web site ‘Drink From The Furry Cup’ has been bought by the BBC.

The site was bought by the BBC for the extraordinary undisclosed price of one KitKat and half a Curly-Wurly and what was described as A once in a life-time opportunity for the editors to avoid getting their knee-caps broken.

The site has on many occasions made allegations that the BBC is actually some sort of Orwellian institution designed to hide the truth about certain government policies. DFTFC can now state, without being forced in any way by our new employers that this is totally false. The BBC is an impartially broadcasting company that is know way associated with or controlled by the none-existent Ministry of Truth. We have also never inserted subliminal messages into our stories.

You will however be glad to here that DFTFC will be continuing in the same manor as it always has. I the forthcoming weeks you can look forward to such exciting stories as ‘Army General in CENSORED scandal’ and Noel Edmonds and his CENSORED obsession. We shall also be bring our new feature CENSORED CAM which shall be showing live updates of the CENSORED in the CENSORED. We are also no longer allowed to mention the fact that Peter Mandelson is gay.

We shall also be bringing a worldwide exclusive about the director general of the BBC with the CENSORED and the CENSORED with the CENSORED on the CENSORED with a Llama.

Also we shall have our new editor Mr CENSORED. Mr CENSORED was a former CENSORED at the BBC and shall hopefully be contributing more intriguing stories to the site.


Rumour that this may just all be an April Fools joke have been CENSORED.

Yeah you guessed it the majority of this site is copyrighted to us, © 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 all the way up to 2014 so please don't pinch it. Obviously this is all in good humour if you don't think so then you don't have "good humour". This is of course only a sarcastic sceptical FICTITIOUS (yes thats right it's not real! - It's actually made up! - Welcome to the world of satire), view on life the universe and everyone in the public light... hey it's all supposed to be good fun... honest :)
