Oink! Spoof written by Charlie Brooker

Before he achieved the dizzy heights of fame and fortune, Charlie Brooker started his career writing stuff like this. Note: Even then Charlie was using the word "knobs" in his writing! (Although, I'm probably not the best person to point this out...)

When Oink! was first being published it had some complaints from the Mary Whitehouse brigade because they thought it was too rude for its intended audience (Not just Charlie, all of it). But it sold pretty well, so the editors ignored the criticism and the newsagents just put it on a slightly higher shelf in their shops.
