Newsarama Trying to Break Into the Funny Article Business

Newsarama Trying to Break Into the Funny Article Business

Well, we commend them for trying...

We get it. It's a slow news day. Nothing is happening. Marvel head honcho Joe Quesada has been conducting business for the last week by carrier pigeon while floating in an old fashioned bathtub in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, thanks to Hurricane Sandy. There's not a lot to write about.

In situations like this, some websites try to leave what is normally considered their "comfort zone." That's what this reporter found this morning when he checked out Newsarama and found this article asking the question, "Which Comic Book Character Would Make the Best President?"

'Rama answers the question in the second paragraph with a humorous and self-deprecating response:

Normally we respond with, “None of them, they’re fictional characters what kind of stupid question is that?” But still – one can dream.

Rip-roaringly hilarious stuff. And there's more where that came from. The article goes on to endorse Flower Party candidate Prez Rickard, star of DC Comics seventies series Prez: First Teen President of the U.S.A.

Oh, Newsarama. You're so outrageous!

So if you're bored this morning, and you can't wait for The Outhouse to churn out another article making fun of George Lucas, X-Box, or My Little Pony (and rest assured, we will), head over to the Rama and give this article a try. If nothing else, it will make you appreciate us that much more.
