Condolences to Manchester

Condolences to Manchester

Out of respect to the people murdered in Manchester, I am postponing any scheduled satire (including satire related to jihadism and other extremism) until tomorrow.

We are all very upset about this. Continue Reading

Poetry About, and Poetry By

Poetry About, and Poetry By

Tomorrow, we’ve got a great treat for you!

Stalwart Glossy News contributor rfreed has some Sarah Palin poems.

Have you ever thought about writing in the persona of someone else?

For satire, it’s one thing to write poems about someone.

But you can also write humorously in someone else’s (entirely fictionalized voice).

There are so many opportunities for this.

You can be Trump, and complain about how the pure evil bought & paid liberal MSM just burnt your toast and made sure you can’t get a mistress.

You can be the ISIS caliph, and sing the blues about how misunderstood you are, and show everyone your true gentle, sensitive soul of a poet.

You can be Putin, clarifying what you were doing in the bar in Moscow late 3 am when rumors started circulating. Nooooooo no drama! No-no-no-drama, drama!

But this is also a time-honored art form.

The scholar Benjamin Jowett taught at Oxford in the 19th century. The naughty rhyme ran as follows:

Here come I, my name is Jowett.
All there is to know I know it.
I am Master of this College,
What I don’t know isn’t knowledge!

So there you go!

What other examples of this kind of writing do you know?

What funny (or otherwise interesting) ‘poetry for’ do you know, and how does it stack up against the ‘poetry about’ the same figure?

And do you have some of your own?

Feel free to comment below; but if you want us to publish anything, please email wallacerunnymede@gmail.com

Thanks, and we hope some of you will have some great ideas!

Wallace

Contribute to this Hilarious New Satire Book: The Vast Right-Wing Dictionary

Contribute to this Hilarious New Satire Book: The Vast Right-Wing Dictionary

Is there a Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy?

Maybe, maybe not.

There is certainly a Vast Right-Wing Dictionary, though!

But help is needed…

Can you help give definitions of words that satirize and parody right-wing understandings of them?

Before you ask, yes there probably should be a Vast Left-Wing Dictionary too.

But let’s make some good progress with this one first.

Send any submissions for relevant dictionary entries to wallacerunnymede@gmail.com

We would like to have all entries together by the end of June 2017. Entries sent after this date may be considered, but only at the editor’s discretion. I estimate August 2017 for publication (if self-published); if a publisher shows interest, it’s anyone’s guess!

Some things are not yet fully decided:

Will it be presented as a Glossy News book, or just a book with Wallace as editor?

How about pricing, formats, outlets and marketing?

These are all things I will discuss with the Glossy News webmaster, Brian K. White.

For now…

Keep on (t-)rollin’!

The Shadow of Charlie

The Shadow of Charlie

After the Charlie Hebdo Massacre in January 2014, Glossy News published many Hebdo-related pieces; and even later on, as well! Some of the material was commentary; but we also had our usual funny ‘fake news’ stories, and various other humorous material. See the reading list following today’s anniversary editorial on Charlie Hebdo.

Quite a variety, as you will shortly see! Continue Reading

The Road Ahead. Glossy News on the Up: Let’s All be Part of the Journey (1/2)

The Road Ahead. Glossy News on the Up: Let’s All be Part of the Journey (1/2)

Glossy News was founded by online satire pioneer Brian K. White. Aside from writing many, many articles, and running various sites, Brian also has his own Glossy News 4K Podcast, On Youtube.

But we have had so many great writers. I myself joined Glossy News a while back, and worked  my way up. I am soon launching a channel of my own: Runnymede Video Bomb!

This is in construction, but make sure to follow it! (I already have a small number of videos on it). January will include some old classics (such as ‘9/11 Problems Jay-Z Parody’ and ‘Wall Street Interview,’) as well as some never-before-seen treasures!

Anyway: I’ve been editor for a while, and I’ve helping Brian to seek out and cultivate great new talent for our site. Whether it’s fake news satire (good old classical humor, not malicious hoaxes!); or parodies of movies, poems, novels, songs, whatever; or even some thought-provoking news commentary, whether solemnly sober, pleasantly amusing or even flat out hilarious…

Glossy News is where you want to be!

We have some big plans for the year ahead. But what does this really mean? Find out in five minutes, in instalment two of this achingly classy ‘Alternative (Humor) New Year’s Message!’
