UnNews:Former Last FM chairman launches controversial sexual assault site
1 December 2012
LONDON, United Kingdom -- Stefan Glaenzer, the ex-chairman of music website Last.fm who recently confessed to a sexual assault on a London Underground train, is set to court new controversy by launching a new website, Tube.rpe that allows users to browse the details of female underground users, in order to facilitate their molestation.
Utilising a user recommender system called Labiascrobbler, Tube.rpe builds a detailed profile of each user's sexual predilections and past peccadilloes by recording details of the women the user has ogled and the tags he has searched for. This information is transferred ("scrobbled") to the page's database and then displayed on the user's profile page and also compiled to create reference pages for individual women.
The lurid front page declares: "Need new female sexual targets? Here you can effortlessly keep a record of what you lust after. Based on your taste, we recommend you even more gash you may be interested in!"
Strictly in the name of research, UnNews opened an account with the site at the earliest moment possible, and found that by cross-referencing our victim preferences (slightly overweight black girls with enormous arses) with our typical routes and timetable, we were provided with a mouth-watering list of candidates of women with difficult African surnames who live at the southern end of the Northern Line. An example of one of the results pages can be found on the right.
Internet analyst Dr Joanna Corey told us, "It's a stroke of genius from Glaenzer. A few years ago, he was able to squeeze £164m out of the sale of Last.fm, in a time when everyone thought there was no money to be made from the record industry. This current project, a combination of the internet and sexual perversion, seems blindingly obvious, but he has tapped into the specific urban phenomenon of molestation on public transport. The demand for this kind of gratification has long been clear, but while it can offer a thrilling setting in which even rubbing your backside against a sexy stranger's is enough for you to go home jismed, it can just as easily disappoint, as you board a carriage full of lifeless, sweaty commuters. Tube.rpe makes that disappointment a thing of the past."
One pervert, who asked not to be named but who we are pretty sure is called Nathan Simmonson and lives in London Bridge said: "Phwoar, it's fabulous! Before I used to get on any ol' random train in the 'ope of coming across a bit of skirt but it was vewy 'it and miss. And you 'ave to remember, it cos' two quid to make a bleedin' journey these days, so the bills soon pile up. Now wiv this website, I can look up the birds online, find out where they're going, and at what time, and 'ave me wicked way wiv 'em!"
