Last Bastion of Oddity

The Weekly World News, one of the last bastions of mainstream oddity is shutting down.

I remember as a lad, when comics of all types were cheap and plentiful at the local drug store, there was also the excellent "news" publication. Too bad it no longer fits in to today's homogenized grocery store checkout racks. If only they had featured Rachael Ray or Brad Pitt more. So go out and pick up a copy so that you can show your children there was once true wonder in this world of ours!

Keep your eyes open Archie, you could be next!
