News of Weird is Always Entertaining

I have been routinely reading News of the Weird for a fair amount of my adult life; the column has been in circulation for more than 20 years.  Chuck Shepherd, with assistance from folks all over that send him odd bits of news, puts out a weekly column of carefully categorized material.

There are a fixed set of categories, though not all appear every week.  Two of my favorites are, “Thinning the Herd,” and “No Longer Weird.”  The former is exactly what the title implies.  The latter is a category of retired story types – things that used to be considered weird, but now occur with such alarming frequency that they have edged into “normal” territory.

The content might not be for everyone, but it is not graphic or explicit.  If you tend not to be easily offended, you will probably find it hilarious.
