Roller Coaster Roulette

Look Out ARN&R, Weekly World News is moving in on your territory.

No word on whether Bat Boy will be involved or not.

You know, I never read any of Weekly World News except for the covers until now. I was always under the impression that they *pretended* to be a legit newspaper.

My, how fast impressions change.

They used to. But somewhere between there and here, they just decided to take it over the top and become 'entertainment'

If you're stuck in line at the grocery store this week, take a look at the January 23rd issue and find the story about the emotional roller coaster built in Atlanta. It makes this one seem legit.

Do you read this publication on a regular basis?

In line at the grocery store? Yes.

I only buy them when I'm flying. Great read for long flights.

How else would I know Abe Lincoln had an evil elf in his hat that told him what to do?

Woah! I wonder if this will take place at Bucketheadland!

Proof that it's made up?

"Even truly great actors and actresses like Bo Derek and Heather Locklear or even Pamela Anderson couldn't 'act' this kind of sheer terror.

LOL, of the three, Heather Locklear is the only with with a CHANCE of acting her way out of a paper bag...slim chance.

No, Weekly World News has *never* pretended to be anything other than what it interesting, sometimes funny, sometimes grotesque, read...and yes, I have been to WWN HQ...

Wasn't Abe Lincoln gay?

I am kinda saddened that they didn't do an article on 'boy in long rollercoaster queue gets hungry - eats own foot'.

WWN...a laugh in the grocery store...but somewhere, someone believes everything in it...

wth. What coaster goes over 100 mph and is over 10 minutes long?

This is akkkkwwwwaaarrrrddd.

I'd just like to point out that the visual aid of choice for an article about a deadly roller coaster game is a Vekoma SLC. At least that part of the article is factual. ;)

I used to buy the Weekly world News every week, but it was to make collages with the great pictures. I then used the collages to make fliers advertising my rock band and upcomming shows. Those were the days...

Well, you could've paid attention in history class like the rest of us.

I was sick that week.

When I returned, History class was up to the psychic powers of Andrew Johnson's socks.

"Winning contestants will have to hang on for the 10- minute First Round, while cars race at speeds of up to 100 m.p.h."

Wow, you mean they're going to produce this show at Only In America?

I read the title and thought it was for a Vekoma endurance contest. LOL
Winner to recieve a lifetime supply of tylenol.

I always like to look at WWN's headlines when I pass it in the store.

My favorite:

Poodle Boy: Family has their son genetically crossed with a poodle to have the pet they always wanted. (complete with a picture of a kid with a poodle's nose, long ears, and poofed out poodle hair)

Runner up:

Dick Cheney is a Robot. (complete with a picture of the VP lifting his shirt, exposing his chest that has its pannel removed exposing various wires and circuit boards)

You know the sickest part of that whole story? If that were real? I'd do it. ;)
Wednesday, January 18, 2006 12:46 PM
LMAO! Gonch.

Weekly World News a little much for me but I enjoyed the story. :-)

Usually when I am in line at the grocery store I read People or some other gossip smut magazine to find out what Jessica Simpson and Angelia Jolie are doing, or *who* they are doing. ;-)

LOL @ Barney Farquar of "Grim Reaper Productions." Although the coaster with only one working safety bar sounds suspiciously like the Cyclone @ Williams Grove.
