This is a work of fiction in the genre of parody. Parody means: 1) a pair of d's; 2) a literary or musical work in which the style of an author or work is
closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule; 3) a feeble or ridiculous
imitation. Personally, we're shooting for number two.
This means several things: 1) CBS can't sue us for copyright infringement as
parody is clearly within the exception rule. Nah nah nah nah nah. 2)
Obviously, this is a lampoon of "Survivor", the ridiculous stunt series of
the summer. But, hey, it's beating 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' in the
ratings, thank the gods above! 3) Big note: We are not going to be
politically correct in this series. If you like PC humor, don't read this.
If you still read this and don't like it, don't write us about it. We plan
on bashing stereotypes (hey, they exist for a reason, folks) and exaggerating about as many people and places as possible. It's all in the name of humor.
If it ain't your cup of tea, swim on, matey, this here is our island.
Now, just because CBS can't sue us for copyright infringement, we can and
will sue you. This is an original work of fiction. Fanatic and Advocate own the copyright. (See below for the complete copyright statement.) Think about
our pseudonyms, folks. Fanatic - insane, crazy, obsessed; Advocate - another name for an attorney. Add to the mix the fact that Fanatic is also an
attorney and you don't want to screw with us on this issue. Enough said.
This work of fiction is intended for mature audiences only. There are adult themes and language, nudity, sensuality, sexuality, alternative lifestyles (including depictions of homosexuality), and the like. We believe that most parents would consider these elements to be too strong (for viewing by persons less than 18 years of age). If we were a film, we would have an "R" or an "NC-17" rating.

Though this series is inspired by certain actual incidents, it is a work of
fiction and references to real people and organizations are included only to
lend a sense of authenticity. All of the characters, whether central or
peripheral, are wholly the product of the authors' imagination, as are their
actions, motivations, thoughts and conversations, and neither the characters
nor the situations which were invented for them are intended to depict real
people or real events. In particular, the depictions of CBS and the Survivor television series are not meant to portray the corporation, or any individual on that show, but are only used to lend a sense of authenticity to this work
