Weekly World News Dies; Bat Boy Captured by the FBI -- Obituraries from Time and The Washington Post Answered
The Weekly World News, home to stories about Bat Boy, Elvis's faked death, and Laundry-eating Space Aliens, closed its doors in late August. While at MIT, my house had a subscription to the WWN that we read right next to the Boston Globe and the New York Times during Sunday morning coffee hours. The WWN was the only paper to be consistently read cover to cover.
Check out these obituaries for the WWN. They are positively brilliant
I'm pig-biting sad to see it go.
