After a bit of investigation however, it appears my chair was in no serious danger. Nothing even remotely approaching torture happened to the pair. It turns out that while on the show I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! Heidi forgot to eat for three days, and her stomach began eating itself. She was then rushed to the hospital, idiot boyfriend in tow. The only person who actually claimed she was tortured was Spencer's sister who, despite not being present at the scene, still has a fucking Twitter feed that's apparently considered a capital-S "Source." Nice work Journalism.
Look at the smug little bastard, with his $2000 purse.
With no actual torture to make hilarious torture jokes about, I was a little stuck for article ideas. Fortunately for me, Spencer was sending text messages to the outside world throughout this whole ordeal. Also fortunately, to supplement our income a little, Cracked had a cell tower installed on the roof of our building, and consequently all cell traffic through the western hemisphere is now routed through Cracked servers (AT&T are idiots). It was a simple matter then for me to pluck Spencer's texts from the ether.
It turns out Spence sent over 23,000 text messages during his two days in the jungle. However the vast majority contained only the characters:
Which at first I thought was some kind of technical problem. It was only after I showed it to DOB that he explained to me: "It's the emoticon for a blank look." He kind of swore under his breath after that, and then slammed the door really hard.*
(*DOB doesn't actually have a door to slam of course, much less an office--it was just the door to the staff kitchen. Also, we were both on the same side of the door when he slammed it--afterward we just stood there, staring at our shoes. After a few seconds he opened the door again and went back to his desk.)
Anyways, I've plucked out the text messages where Spencer actually says something, and removed any identifying features about the recipients (they were mostly minor celebrities, but also for some reason a Los Angeles area Pizza Hut).

To get back at the doctor, I just Spenced out all over the place, and may have slapped his nurse. That'll show him.
