MSR (27 october '000)
Despite being monkeys Electronics Boutique sometimes get things right. They claim that Metropolis Street Racer is going to be released next friday contrary to rumours that the
game was to be released in the early twenty-fifth century. They've got a special pre-order
offer and leaflets and a demo running in the shop right now which suggests they might even
Could the release date really have been brought forward after so many delays? This diagram may help to solve the riddle once and for all
As you can see the horizontal axis shows the actual date starting in the past and ending in the future, the vertical axis shows the intended release date. The red line shows the
correlation between the two dates, and the green line shows where the release date is equal to the actual date... which means that all the points where the green and red lines cross show the dates when MSR will be released.... so I guess the area between the two lines is the time in which the game will be about to have been released.. or something...

Westlife say 'Yes' to PS2(15 october '000)
"Hi we're Westlife! We've been playing every game for the new Nintendo PlayStation 2 and we can personally endorse every single one as being a least ten times more playable than games on any other console*. Unfortunately we aren't all able to play PS2 games together because our combined total IQ. just tips 100 but thats okay because Nintendo have wisely only put two joystick ports on the machine.. phew!|

PokeKen speaks (15 october '000)
"this is indeed a terribly sad occasion, as berty the
coffee maker in "spastic games ltd" died yesterday
through accidentally trying a level of his companies
latest and only ever PS2 title. It has been reported
that he slipped through the leather tight security men
and by-passed the high strength rubber band held
across the door.|
A spokesman for the company said that the game was not
intended for people with IQs over 100, so berty's
genius like 101 was just too much.
To prevent any bad effects on the game's sales figures
on release, the company has decided to give away a
free "westlife" t-shirt with every purchase. This is
expected to keep sales just above the number of
westlife fans...a wild and over confident estimate

Great Jumping Spiders! (10 october '000)
News reached me today that UK:Resistance is alive and well... Hurrah! But before you go and look at their superior comedy... bugger, too late..|
..back now? sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.. er.. continue
The older and wiser of you may know that in a previous life JumpySpider was known as UK:Rebellion, a sister site to UK:Resistance (for 'sister' read 'bastard cousin') so to know that it is live and kicking is like finding a long lost... er.. website.
Anyway, after reading UK:R and reminding myself what comedy is and roughly how it works I have been inspired to try some more of my own.
Henceforth I, the Jumpy Spider, pledge to keep JumpySpider.com updated regularly through a diet heavy in fibre and low in fat. Enjoy it while it lasts.
