Soon-to-Be-Award-Winning Daily Noosepapers Are Much Funnier Than Those Stupid B.L.O.G.S.

The Alameda Daily Noose and I are aware that some people like to read humorous things on the interweb, and we want to remind our ever-increasing pool of readers that we have an excellent sense of humor.

That's right: there is more to the Noose than plentiful scoops of investigative reporting, topped with scintillating editorial commentary surrounded by an artful sprinkling of insightful letters. We also provide high-quality, topical humor, like the crispy wafer that goes with a delicious, hard-hitting ice-cream sundae. So enjoy today's hot-off-the-press joke, and go about the rest of your day with a spring in your step and a renewed confidence in the continued "hep-ness" and relevance of your favorite Noosepaper:

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Carl who?
Car'l get you there faster than a bike.

The joke we've chosen to share with you today is particularly appropriate, because it highlights the silliness inherent in riding a bicycle. After all, what kind of idiot would ride a bicycle in a city that has so much traffic? Oh, wait, that's right—the Chief Justice of the Travel Collaborative, John…Knox…White would, at least as long as the cameras were rolling.

Your enjoyment of this 100% original joke will also undoubtedly be enhanced by the knowledge that the Alameda Daily Noose and I created it all by ourselves, unlike those lazy B.L.O.G.-ers, who just copy their material from somebody else's interweb site.

I'm sick and tired of this OUTRAGEOUS load of bull circulating about Alameda Daily Noose being a "soon-to-be-award-winning" daily noosepaper. It's upsetting, unrealistic and untrue. I propose we, the faithful readers of this site, create an award specifically for ADN so it can no longer be the "soon-to-be-award-winning daily noosepaper" and can become a fully fledged, "award-having-since-people-who-read-it-like-it noosepaper." So as far as I'm concerned, we should offer the "Alameda-Daily-Noose-Rocks-My-Socks-Off-Because-Its-Opinion-Dovetails-with-mine-quite-nicely award" to editor Roger Grumbel at our earliest opportunity. Just as long as he learns to spell divisible properly.
