See you one day at Wal-Mart, Bat Boy.

>> The sudden shuttering, which reportedly took staff in its Boca Raton, Fla., headquarters by surprise, means that the world will now be without a prime source of information about the activities of aliens on Earth, including the extraterrestrial who is reported in the current issue of WWN to be treating the ailing Fidel Castro.

But at least one presidential candidate can breathe easier: WWN - which bills itself as "the world's only reliable newspaper" - had been the only widely distributed paper with enough courage to regularly report on the romance between the extraterrestrial P'lod and Hillary Clinton, who bore his love child. <<

I saw that news yesterday and it really bummed me out. WWN was the only paper I trusted to tell the truth about things. I can't believe it's gone.

Oh and the real reason it failed is they raised the prices on the thing so much most of us had to stop buying it. When it was 95 cents, it was an easy splurge decision in the checkout, but at $3 or whatever it was at the end was too much. So circulation dropped, then ad revenue disappeared.

Oh, and The Men In Black used to use it to know what was going on.  I guess they'll have to go on-line from now on.

I always liked Ed Anger's columns.

That and finding out who the aliens were endorsing for President each election.

Yeah.  I used to read it in the employee break room at the Winn-Dixie supermarket I worked at in high school.

It wasn't so heavy with the alien stories back then -- mostly stuff like women getting revenge in unusual ways on their cheatin' man.
