National Enquirer...I mean, really?

Who the hell reads the National Enquirer? 

I was recently going to the bathroom in my place of employment and there was a National Enquirer on the back of the toilet. Now, in my building, knowing my co-workers it was purchased as a joke. But it got me thinking...

Who the hell reads that trash? I mean, there can't be that many people who think it's a funny enough joke to support the on-going printing of it. So that must mean they have actual readership. 

Besides the one time they actually got a story right (see: John Edwards, skanky politician extraordinaire) they usually talk about alien babies and tragic completely ridiculous and made-up celebrity stories.  Their stuff is so far-fetched that it is nowhere near believable. How do people think it is a good investment of their money?

They even have a website which I'm almost embarrassed to link to, but it's such a crapfest I couldn't help myself. Besides the crappy content, it looks like a 5 year old designed it. So many blinky .gif images! Arghhh!

Anyway, those are just my thoughts. Do you know anyone who reads this shit show like for real? Not for jokes?

I don't know anyone. I don't think I have even seen a copy in years.

True that they must have readership somewhere and THAT

kind of scares me.

that is all

I've seen copies in the checkout stand and I never really thought about it. Until I saw it in our bathroom. And then I thought about who actually buys it. Then I remembered it's probably the same people who think Sarah Palin is a genius. Americans are scary.
