This page was created in 2010, while pondering the future and what corny irony we'd witness leading up to 2020. Example: A cheesy optometrist ad/billboard that says "Seeing Clearly in 2020"... The theme we'd like to continue promoting is "The Wormholes of Irony". We will focus on the weird, the tragic, the dramatic, the comedic, and the real news stories with deeper esoteric undertones. While some pages focus on the creation of content, this page will focus on the ironic observations of the content of others.

Mission: To collect and distribute the ironic news leading up to 2020 and through till 2024.
