Example of a Spoof text Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. "Wake up, son. It's time to go to school!" "But why, Mom? I don't want to go." "Give me two reasons why you don't want to go." "Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!" "Oh, that's no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready." "Give me two reasons why I should go to school." "Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the Principal!" (Taken from: www.rd.com/) Note on Spoof Text A funny story is always interesting. It really amuses reader. This amusement is actually the main function of spoof text.
