The Power of One eBook: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A ludicrous satirical story regarding the Spice Girls and a fictitious stalker who sent the band sinister messages, including a tape foreseeing their bizarre deaths, soiled underwear and notes written in faeces has been picked up and printed as fact by poncy new Web site Ammocity.com.

Why do you care? One, because it's always funny when people have a sense of humour failure, secondly because the writer of the daft story has gone to the trouble of producing the song supposedly written by the stalker and put streaming links to its on the Tsluts.com Web site. And thirdly, because Ammocity is a horrible site but strangely nostalgic because it harks back to those days when people hired design firms to produce Web sites and ended up with an expensive, unworkable mess.

Anyway, the story, entitled "popbollocks2: I want to die like ginger spice" and finishing with the disclaimer "Everything listed in PopBollocks is absolutely and definitely true", will give you a truer picture, so have a look at it here. You'll also find the lyrics, and an opportunity to listen to the song, which sounds awful despite singer/writer Rob Manuel assuring us that his mum thinks he sings like an angel.

In terms of spice girl death: Ginger Spice dies in a bowl of rice, the Sporty one staring at a gun, Scary force-fed dairy produce, Baby frozen to death in the Arctic and Posh dies crack-addled in a penthouse flat.

We can't give you a link to the poncy Ammocity Web site because it has wisely chosen to run the entire site through Flash 5. If you really want to see, click here, download the plug-in, click Enter, wait and wait, go over to that little menu bit in the top left, no, over there. Okay, get on the down button and find and click Search. Then tap in "spice". You should be fine from there. ®
