Is website 'Christwire' serious? Kee-rist, who knows?

SACRAMENTO, Calif., USA - Many novelists have commented in the last 20 years or so that writing novels has become really hard.

Really hard?

It's become really hard because real life has become so incredibly bizarre, it's hard to write fiction that isn't topped by that day's headlines.

And so it was today, I was forwarded a link to a website called Christwire that reinforced the idea..
  • • Link to Christwire

  • The link was to a reportedly serious column that makes the claim that the late 1980s and early 1990s sitcom, The Golden Girls turned many American male viewers gay.

    See? How can a novelist compete with that?

    But after doing some research into the site, it's still unclear if the site is a spoof (I lean in that direction) or one that is arguably real.

    If the people who are posting things on it are, well, serious, I am going to have to find a new term. Wing nut doesn't even come close. In fact, it would be an insult to wing nuts everywhere to be linked to what is posted on the site.

    Check it out, but not this moment. The site seems to be crashing a lot.

    Amen to that.

    Golden Girls - gay magnets?


    1. Mike,

      Lay you even money that site is NOT another "Colbert Report".

      Did you purposely send this out on Halloween to scare the he!! out of us?

      And yes, it would be extremely hard to compete with that!


    2. Hi I am investigating about these guys too. Some say they are too dumb to be real and others say that these guys are serious, however can you really write something like this and not be joking?
