Satire Website ‘New Maine News’ Returns After Unbearable Hiatus
After what seems like an eternity, Maine-based satire website, New Maine News, has started posting on Facebook and its parent site again. It's a happy day for me and a bunch of my friends, as we all enjoy comparing the headlines that appear on the site. You'd be hard pressed to find more amusing local satire.
If you're familiar, NewMaineNews.com is a website that features all sorts of fake news stories, that only sound a tiny bit real, but have certainly fooled folks in the past. A lot of folks may remember when they fooled the pants right off of ESPN. Golic and Wingo read a now-famous story about a high school basketball championship having to be canceled, after the ball rolled behind a wood stove.
Back in May, they had put out a statement on the New Maine News Facebook page, saying they were going on a hiatus. Honestly, I may have shed a tear when I read it. I'm a big fan of websites like The Onion, or The Hard Times. I get a hearty kick out of well done spoofs that really shine a light on how ludicrous things can be in life at times.
So I will welcome them back with open arms. At this time in all our lives, I think we can all agree that we need to laugh a lot more, and complain a lot less. And any of the websites I listed in this quick little blurb, will give you a series of full-on belly laughs. And I think that's just what the doctor ordered. Unless it's Dr. McGillicuddy's. Then, that's what I ordered.
