Minister outlaws satirical websites.

DoWFET, The Department of Websites, Flash and Electric Telephones, has outlawed a number of scurrilous, allegedly funny, satire websites in an effort to stem the flow of evil, it has emerged.

Speaking from his Chaise longue in the pipe-smoking wing of DoWFET’s London offices, Minister Earl Url of Slashdot Snoring outlined the move to a group of attentive young ladies suggestively draped around him in lightweight negligees.

“The Department of Social Scrutiny has promised me that the Government is embarking on a three year programme which will eventually block this scum from our screens, but until then I urge members of the public not to visit these sites or they will be nailed to a log and have their dirty, filth-infected eyes pecked-out by ravens at the Tower.”

The banned websites are as follows: do not click any of the following links until you have installed the Echelon Plug-In for your browser:
