And Speaking of Beef...
Hey, pal, heard about the 21 million pounds of tainted beef that the fatcat FDA doesn't want YOU to eat? You're a savvy bargainhound, so we're sure you're wondering where beef goes when the government recalls it. No company in its right mind would come right out and admit to selling recalled beef, but our BARGAIN-HUNGRY customers are encouraged to note the subtle winking tone of this paragraph and, if they desire, to put two and two together! We're waiting by the phones, in case you want to talk about whatever!

Irregular Train Lunch Boxes! So, so many!
God damn! We can't walk ten steps in this place without tripping over a palette of irregular Train lunch boxes! We know we're supposed to be selling you this shit, but will you just commiserate for a second? Forget you're supposed to be buying these idiot things and just think about how some company out there produced forty thousand lunch box/thermos sets based on the Grammy-winning soft rock act Train, but with the fucking name spelt wrong. Now think about how we have to look at these goddamn things all day. I hate them more than anything else in the world.
But wait! The Internet Discount Barn is now offering these gorgeous commemorative irregular Train lunch boxes for just twenty cents each!

Gotta Punch a Cat Fast? You Now May!
Wonder how movies get those shots of horses falling off cliffs and turkeys being ripped apart by small arms fire? Easy: just the same way companies get away with polluting your water! You see, the ASPCA grants each Hollywood production a small number of 'cruelty credits,' which producers can elect to use for minor acts of cruelty (like Powers Boothe crushing a scorpion in his bare hand in Extreme Prejudice) or pool for the filming of much crueler projects (like the ox at the end of Apocalypse Now). Now, for the first time ever, you can buy Hollywood cruelty credits for your own personal home use! We're selling these hot chiquitas for just two dollars apiece, and each credit lets you be cruel to up to one pound of animal! Just twenty bucks worth lets you punt your wife's worthless little dog& with a couple thousand, you could comfortably mutilate a horse!
Please note: an ASPCA auditor must be present to verify all acts of cruelty, so those of you into the kinky stuff will have to do without privacy.
Stay tuned for future newsletters for more DEAD-SERIOUS DEALS! Remember: don't tell ol' Uncle Sam you've heard of us. He just wouldn't understand!
After years of being misunderstood, I had hoped we finally had "our" story. I was wrong.
He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
