satire wire ending

Citing creative differences among the one man team at Andrew Marlatt has announced that he’s closing up shop.

“I’ve been producing SatireWire by myself for 159 Internet years (2.67 Earth years), and in a staff meeting yesterday, I all agreed it’s time for me to move on,” said Marlatt. “While the decision was certainly difficult, the meeting was actually quite harmonious. I brought doughnuts.”

It’s too bad to see him leave, but if you don’t have the love, it’s time for the shove. (via slashdot)

  1. This is sad news indeed. I initially thought SatireWire was just a lame Onion rip-off, but I often found it more amusing than the Onion. I spent a good while today catching up on all the articles I’d missed, and now there will be no more. Alas!
