Aiming to keep the disillusioned people of the eWorld entertained, he would go on to release extremely popular articles, such as the introduction of beer and eSomalian Pirates, as well as other satirical reports on different goings on around the world.
In its years of journalism, the Civil Service continues its inane ramblings today.
Having joined the Royal Guards from an early age, Sir Humphrey was eager to help serve his country in battle as well as on the forums.
