I don't think I laughed at anything in a week as much as this one-off comment:

OMG HE HAS DEVIL POWERS!!!

The Booker T comment from Kane showed continuity, which I am all for in the world of wrestling.

OMG he has rip off powers.

read www.weeklyvisitor.com and you'll see where 90% of "his comedy" comes from. Actually, I lie. I can't stand Hot Newz, as it is no different from most of the other "humor" on wrestling websites. Weekly Visitor, on the other hand, is funny.

And I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with the fact that you work there, eh? ;-)

work? hahaha. Hohoho. Seriously, though, I was and am a fan long before I wrote anything there.I'm just shocked that a website that seems to be based on a group that expect the best from one sort of entertainment (wrestling) is willing to deal with the worst of another form (humor).

I don't get it.

I read one of the Hot Newz columns once, and I didn't like it. I've liked pretty much everything I've read on WV since Shane started linking there.

There's just this bitterness that I don't get. The WV stuff uses certain elements as a joke, not as the entire formula for the columns. Hot Newz seems more like a bad impression of Jeff K. writing a wrestling column than it does a ripoff of WV. I just don't get the anger, Jon. We still love you.



I would love even more to know the origin and meaning behind WIMBLEDONED, but I guess that's something else altogether.

wimbeldoned = reversed.

It's the fact that whoever this Hot Newz dude is acts like he's never read WV or SOmething Awful. Each one seems to use some joke from WV, and they are all a pale imitation of Jeff K. (which I thought everyone got sick of that years ago). It's things like "Devil Powars" and "Brad Shaw" that bother me, as they have been used on WV for months now, and then Hot Newz apparently thinks them up while he was exposing the world to this hilarious bit of Engrish from a Genesis game that he also dsicovered.

We're bitter old women.

Really, we just like complaining. Of course there are already things like Hot Newz up, and there were things like it before WV even started. But that Devil Power line...well, a nearly exact line appears in one of the comics.

Nothing can really be 'original' of course, but I think anyone would feel a bit of a sting when they see something getting a lot of praise--especially when that something is a lot like things they'd been writing up for quite some time (without getting much recognition at all). CRZ is a much larger site with tons of readers, so anything on it will get more recognition than anything on a smaller site.

Damnation. I never meant to write all THAT much. I just wanted to explain that we're not bitter. We're just bitter, confused, upset, cold, lonely, and scared.

It's one thing to do a news parody type of thing, but it's another to do a horrible one full of "jokes" that are incredibly similar to stuff on other sites and claim that you created it.

I'd just like to express some solidarity for my WV bretheren. Hot Newz Guy has the good sense to not rip my stuff off because it's too obscure and unfunny, but I agree that a vast number of his "jokes" have been obviously "borrowed" from WV. This wouldn't be so bad if he were to give a shout out to us or something, rather than apparently denying he's ever heard of us.

Hot Newz Guy, I'm calling you out! We're sullying your "good" name.. Defend yourself! =)

Well I don't know what to say. I've honestly never read Weekly Visitor. I'd never even heard of it until John Hunt emailed me a few weeks ago accusing me of riping it off. But I doubt there's anything I can say to make you believe me, so what's the point?

Maybe you should claim in a backwards way that John Hunt ripped it off in your sign-off and start an internet feud.

OH! And there it is AGAIN!

I am in the camp of those who have never heard of the Weekly Visitor site. Pardon my ignorance on the "Devil Powers" bit, which I thought was really funny. I also find Hot Newz to be funny, and WAY better than Jeff K (which I have read and makes my head explode with the overuse of the typo gimmick.) And, I don't think that I've ever seen Hot Newz make a reference that his reports are original, and if he did, I think that would be part of the joke.

By the way, I work for NONE of these web sites.

How do you not find Jeff K. funny, but do find Hot Newz funny? It's the same thing. Typos and calling people gay.

Because when you read Jeff K, there's a sense that behind all of it, the guy writing it pretty much thinks like that anyway. It's a lot more... "Hey, I've found a way to insult people that has no comeback". Whilst HotNewz is actually a parody, a parody of something we're all familiar with, and a parody that works, mainly because it's not as "Hey, aren't I hilarious" as Jeff K is.

Eh, I did like Jeff K. when they were still doing updates (before Lowtax handed over the site to Not Funny People), but it definitely was more for the comics towards the end (I like yours too, Nik.)

Edit: Judd Nelson, you need to be throttled.

And Cliff hates you.

Anyway, if you really think about it, neither Jeff K. or Hot Newz are original at all. Their both parodies of the fact that being on the Internet seems to give people grammar and spelling problems, and being a young male on the Internet seems to force you to call alot of things "gay" or "bigayual" as it were. I mean I'm not a 1337 haXor or anything, but I've picked up enough of the lingo to understand why these parodies are supposed to be funny. I've visited a lot of really bad wrestling sites for the fun of it, and half of them look exactly like that.

We live in a snooty little smarky smark smark world, where everyone has impecible grammar and wonderful opinions and ideas, but it's really pretty fun to take our cheap shots at everyone else. Hot Newz is what it is. It's funny if you get it (or like it) and it's not if it's not. Jeff K is the same way.

Later d00dz! LOL!

Ehem. Sorry about that.
