City Paper is not for tourists
ISN’T IT TIME YOU took a long look in the mirror and discontinued News of the Weird? A recent installment starts out with a hilarious item about a 46-year-old man who impregnated his 12-year-old granddaughter. Another entry recounts an uproarious anecdote about a hairdresser who masturbated openly while doing a female customer’s hair—and informs us with a chuckle that “the customer was too frightened to object.” Presumably, future installments will inform us about particularly amusing Bosnian rapes and the lighter side of the Dunblane massacre. Black humor is one thing, but there is something seriously wrong with the soul of anybody who can get enjoyment out of the real-life horrors that your newspaper offers up as humor week after week.
