It's so good to be back after a well earned break. I have certainly missed rehashing old stories in order to fill the gaps left by a lack of talent and new ideas. I am going to cheat a little and highlight a story from the previous week as well as review the stories from this time last year. The topical tale of The Oscars was a carefully written piece which barely avoided a copyright infringement suit from 'The Academy'.

We know that the news never stops, but considering that we at Slap the Penguin have real families and real jobs outside of this satirical news blog, we are announcing a brief break from publishing.
From time to time these breaks are needed to recharge the batteries and reassess the priorities of the site. We are planning to recommence publishing at the beginning of March, 2012.
On a more tastless note...

Dear Tina, I am confused about the whole groundhog day thing. What does his shadow have to do with the weather? Can those guys in hats really speak groundhogese? Is Phil really 126 years old? It seems to me that those old farts in the hats are just trying to perpetuate a stupid tourist tradition so that they only have to work for 1 week per year.
Sincerely, Anti-Groundhog Girl
