"I was Bigfoot's Love Slave!"

Traditional media is dead. Newspaper circulation is in a death-spiral. And here's proof. The Weekly World News is closing!

Where else will we get information about how a lost sandal of Jesus was found in Central Park, or that al-Qaeda was plotting to hijack Santa's sleigh? The Web site will not fill the void!

My two favorite memories: "I was Bigfoot's Love Slave" - supposedly written by a male logger, and featuring this tidbit: "...he was very gentle, we lived in a cave, he brought me small game to roast on the fire...." We had that one on the fridge for a long time.

And explaining to my five-year-old that the photo showing Bill Clinton with what was supposedly a three-breasted intern was Photoshopped.
