Pimping For Our Comrades

Posted by on January 26 at 10:48 AM

Yesterday David Schmader linked to a story on the website Sploid about a hideous little shit who allegedly beat his grandmother for beer money. After the post, we got a number of emails asking us just what in the hell Sploid is. For those too lazy to explore the site, here’s how they explain themselves:

SPLOID delivers the tabloid breaking news you crave: fresh disasters, strange crimes, political scandal, odd characters, bizarre phenomena, freakish animals, horrifying conspiracies, goofy do-gooders, police idiocy and all the government-gone-wild insanity you can handle.

It’s a very funny site that should be checked daily. (On a related note, it’s owned by Gawker Media, which is also responsible for Fleshbot, a site I know absolutely nothing about.)
