Outhouse reporters are feeling pretty exhausted after a weekend of comic con reporting.
With over 150 articles written over the course of four days, the Outhouse writing staff is feeling pretty exhausted. San Diego Comic Con is the biggest comics event of the year, which requires dedicated comics reporters to ignore the jobs, families, and other real life duties even more than normal in order to meet the rigorous demands of the super serious comics news cycle. As a result, the writers plan to to take it easy today.
"Marvel sent us some previews to post," said Jude Terror, a fatso. "But fuck 'em."
Terror, who posted 47 articles during the comic con bonanza, plans to do something relaxing for the day, such as concentrate on his real job.
Meanwhile, The Outhouse's star news reporter and magnet for criticism ThanosCopter actually published an article on The Walking Dead's sales dominance this morning, but it is unknown whether he is an actual real human being, so this proves nothing. Going by our criteria, which was to select all articles in the database posted after midnight last Wednesday, ThanosCopter has contributed 49 articles to SDCC 2012, which makes Jude Terror jealous.
Other stalwarts of the Outhouse team played a big role as well. Brad Thomson, an IT Professional by day and Editor/Writer/Podcast Manager/Quasi-Mawd by night (well, and also by day, if only all our bosses knew...), published 16 articles over the weekend. Nerdyboy, another podcaster and frequent news contributor, published 13 articles. Podcaster, resident doll expert, and lover of inferior goblin characters Zechs, besides providing fodder for jokes about bronies and P.E.D.O.S., published 12 articles during the convention.
Other writers who contributed to the Outhouse's success, which culminated in two banner days of record-breaking ammounts of sweet, sweet unique hits on Saturday and Sunday, were returning hero Nightfly, with 5 articles, lovable curmudgeon GHERU, with 5 articles, former news critic and editor Keb, with 5 articles, recent staff addition IvCNuB4, with 4 articles, actual we-shit-you-not brony SilverPhoenix, with 3 articles, insane egomaniac and Blud Blood creator Jon Salwen, with 2 articles, and stalwart reporter and editor GLX, with one article.
If we missed anyone... hey, we just said we were being lazy.
In addition, Xaraan, ~Alima~, and DomG were all on the scene at the convention, texting Christian Hoffer, making connections, and getting interviews that will be posted later this week.
Finally, we'd also be remiss in not thanking all the members of the Outhouse News Room on Skype for their assistance in coordinating stories and coming up with funny lines for Jude Terror and ThanosCopter articles.
Great job everyone, and thanks for wasting your valuable time contributing to the site, with no reward other than the delicious tears of butthurt posters complaining about news snark! Now take the day off!
Jude Terror, signing off.
