Occasionally in the hard-hitting, fast-breaking, no-nonsense world of professional journalism, there are mistakes, and it seems we at PFN News have committed one of these rare errors.

We recently learned that we have been publishing the work of correspondent Scoot McD under the wrong name.  Upon review of our personnel files, we found that we have on file, an application for an out-of-state feral goat permit for Mr. McD.  “For obvious reasons,” says Scoot, he always conducts his agricultural business under an assumed name, and he mistakenly sent the Wyoming Feral Goat Registrar (WFGR) his actual employment application under his legal name, Trevor Winfield “Scud” Langley III.

While we at PFN News found the skills and experience in animal husbandry, and adequate land ownership of one Mr. Scoot McD, perfectly suited him for the role as news correspondent.  Unfortunately, the WFGR has concluded that Mr. Langley’s landmark coverage of the Tsi Tsi Rebellion, the Libertarian movement in Quebec, and the Honduran parvo outbreak of 1992, did not qualify him to operate a feral goat ranch.

While we are happy to have Mr. Langley on our team, we regret the decision of the WFGR, and are assisting him in the appeal process.  We will publish his work henceforth under the name Scud Langley, and correct all previous postings.

    I thought the name Scoot McD sounded “possibly fake”.

    Get it? Possibly fake… like your news thing… No?

      Well you must understand Mr. deBorge, any reputable news organization, with the level of influence and sheer volume of consumers such as our own, must have an unparalleled commitment to something like integrity. If we had learned that the journalist formerly known as Scoot McD’s real name was Scaffolding Twentyseven Marbleciprion, we would have been compelled to print it, no matter how “possibly fake” it may sound.

      All I can tell you is NEVER put your real name on any license to keep and bare feral fauna. I say that because I do recall seeing an application for one “Pervis deBorge” to receive a feral buzzard license while at the Wyoming Feral License Institute (of which the WFGR is a subsidiary). Big mistake, my friend.
