Dude, For Real?

A couple of months ago I was thrilled to see that The Weekly World News had only ceased physical publication and was still alive and well online.  I no longer had to mourn Batboy or the aliens in the White House or wonder whatever became of JFK's double.  *Sigh*  It was a great day for me.  If only the reality matched up with my loving memories. 

I've checked the site a few times and it's just not the same.  Gone are the hard hitting exposes of zombies invading [insert your town here] and in their place are multiple pieces about Kim Kardashian's butt and whether Megan Fox is really a man.  Tabloid journalism to be sure but not the glory of the old WWN.  So when I ran across an article recently I got all excited, hoping against hope that this would be a return to form.  Just check out the headline:  ALIEN BROTHEL.  Now we're getting somewhere!  According to the article Dennis Hof, owner of a brothel called Cathouse in (where else?) Nevada, is planning to open an alien themed one that promises "girls from another world."  *Fans self*  I mean, is THAT a return to form or what?

You can imagine my distress when I found out it was TRUE.  Every.  Single.  Word.  If you can't trust WWN to make up entertaining lies who can you trust?  The Daily Mail only approaches this level of lunacy with their time travel stories.  *Sigh*  Whatever, WWN.  My love for Batboy is still strong but I'm going to have to reconsider my adoration of you.  I feel so cheated.


  1. I loved the "rant", but it made it so much better when I got to Dirty Laundry. The two together,... you = awesome.

  2. LOL!!! I never picked up the rag at checkout because I didn't want to be seen reading it. Batboy must be 60 by now, no?

  3. When I was in college my academic advisor told us in class one day that writers for WWN were the highest paid in the industry.
