The "Asheville Disclaimer" puerile? Duh! Of course it is [“Give Me Weird, May 30 Xpress]. Sorry it isn't high brow, but most comedy isn't (and comedy that is high brow isn't funny). Read The New Yorker if you're into that crap.
I have read and laughed out loud at the "Disclaimer." I loved it when it was an entire paper, and I loved the fact that Mountain Xpress picked it up. “News of the Weird” is, at times, amusing, but overall formulaic, repetitive and oftentimes a direct reprint of past stories. I'm glad you're not the Comedy Police, because the Xpress would be a whole lot less entertaining.
I've read the criticisms over the past couple of weeks about the "Disclaimer” and you guys need to get over yourselves and laugh!
