Where are they now? Slap the Penguin

By +Ian C

Hi. How are you? Haven't seen you for a while.
Slap the Penguin Banner
The original and the best
Remember that Satirical News Blog called Slap the Penguin? It was really popular a couple of years ago, before fake news became a mainstream professional thing. Things started to fall apart as the Trump political era dawned. News stories were scrutinized and fact checked, and things looked bleak for non-factual news. It was at that time we decided to take a break from Slapping Penguins.

Real News about Fake Brews at Walmart

By +Brad Naylor

This is going to look like we are Walmart bashing, but this news story is trending, and the headline jumped into my head so I figured I would exploit my position as a reporter and share it with you guys. Super giant retailer of everything (including Ivanka Trumps clothing) has been caught supposedly selling it's mass produced, mass market beer as a craft brew.

Walmart take up slack on Ivanka Trump clothing lines

By +Tina Cruris

Ivanka Trump's foray into fashion has almost been derailed as a number of key retailers dropped her clothing lines from their stores. Nordstrom led the charge, much to the chagrin of Donald Trump, who went as far as using his position of power to slam them for treating her "so unfairly". The list of stores who have removed at least some Trump lines from their portfolio now includes Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, Burlington, Sears, and Kmart.

Kanye kept on a leash for the 2017 Grammys

By +Ian C

Last night The Grammys were in town, and so were some of the planet's finest musical talents. A long list of celebrities were presenting and receiving awards, but the world's greatest celebrity musician was conspicuously absent. No I don't mean David Bowie, who had a good reason to not collect his 5 awards in person.
