Farewell fellow Bizarros:
Did you know that I didn't start Bizarre News? BN was started by some guy working on his computer at home all the way back in 1997 or 1998. Back then Gophercentral.com
was called Shagmail (named after a popular James Bond spoof movie at the time) and we recruited Bizarre News to be a part of our catalog of email newsletters. Eventually the original author quit and we took it over.
Now, 25 years later, it's time for Bizarre News to wrap up it's historic run. I wonder what that guy who had a couple thousand subscribers on his AOL account would think if he knew his creation lasted this long.
But we're not forgetting about you! Starting next week you will be receiving our newly revamped humor list Laff-a-Day
. Hopefully you'll appreciate the laughs as much as you appreciated the bizarre news.
Thanks for sharing the world of the weird, the strange and the stupid with me.
P.S. Bizarre News is now on Facebook. We're expanding our reach, to bring the strange and stupid news to you whenever you log on. Follow Bizarre News and join the group so you won't miss out on a single story. Click here to visit Bizarre News on Facebook
