Star Wars 40th Anniversary Brings Fertile Crop to Comicbook.com's Click Farm

Carrie Fisher's death will support the site for years to come.



With the Star Wars 40th Anniversary Celebration in process it is no surprise to see Carrie Fisher back in the news. The celebration paid tribute to her in what was a touching montage of the actresses' most iconic role.

But Comicbook.com has taken even more from this than others. "Yep, it's a steady crop," said Editor-in-Chief Dallas Jackson from the Brentwood, Tennessee click farm, "Ever since ol' Carrie passed she's been the best fertilizer for growin' clicks, and a new pile of it came in with that tribute video."

Some have criticized the way Comicbook.com bleeds a tragedy for clicks and article content, but Executive Editor Jim Viscardi disagrees. "We make good use of what the Lord provides us with," said Viscardi through a mouth full of dip,"We use ever part of the animal, and we here on the Sam Savage's click farm are using every part of the Carrie to grow out clicks. We use the death. We use the reactions. We use them wrestler's reactions. We use the tribute video. We use an image in the tribute video. We use the reactions to the tribute video. We using any passing comment we can find, cause that's the only way to respect a woman and her family in her passing, by remembering her in dozens of articles complete with slideshows and embedded videos."

Some claim that the use of slideshows is an artificial enhancement to the click growth, but Jackson disputes this, "Our clicks are organic. Them northerners sayin' we inflated our clicks artificially, well that's just offensive. Everyone's gettin' all hurt by the way we do things. They need to be worryin' bout themselves."

"It's just our job," added Jackson, "People need their clicks after a hard day at work, and it's our job to make sure that the average man can enjoy a nice clickable article about a woman who passed away near four months ago. Government may be cuttin' subsidies and forgettin' about the click farmers of America, but we're never forgettin' bout you."
