Two Click Minimum: Splitsider Is Here

You'll laugh so hard your nuts will fall right out of your sack And here we go… Ladies and gentlemen, Splitsider is live. Adam Frucci's new site-the first addition to what Publisher David Cho refers to as "The Awl Network"-is about comedy, comedians and all things funny in the age of the Internet, and it will appeal to anyone who has ever laughed at anything ever. It's a fine product and we'd be most pleased if you made a few visits, added it to your RSS, told your friends… you know, the whole bit. Thanks! See you there!

Does this mean The Awl will no longer be funny?

narnio (#38)

Nice one.

Ha "no longer."

I do not refer to it as "The Awl Network".

The All Network?
The Auger Network?
The Augur Network?

Well, in the Staff masthead (is that still a thing?) under "Network" it lists "The Awl".

I want all of you to sit up in your chairs. I want you to sit up right now and click on a new window. Open it, and stick your cursor out…

While you're not referring to it as the "Awl Network", are you sitting in a big chair with your back to the webcam and petting Cat, like Dr. Claw?

David Cho Omnimedia?

"A David Cho Joint"

David Cho (#3)

We had an email chain about what we should call it and the back and forth was pretty much exactly what's been said in this thread.

Might be the Be-Awl and the End-Awl-here,
But here, upon this bank and shoal of time,
We'd jump the life to come.

A Cho & Cho Production?

"The Awl Family of Products"

That was supposed to be a reply to David.

kneetoe (#1,881)

Shit, I thought it was "spitslider" and had to do with baseball.

Alex Balk (#4)

We're squatting that for the porn site.

kneetoe (#1,881)

(I commented here instead of there because my comment's not funny.)

Beta be an invite for that one.

Wait, should I have not registered again? I'm confused. Are there now two of me on the Awl Network?

kneetoe (#1,881)

@Balk: Nicely done. If I understand the internets at all, shouldn't you have started with the porn site (and then, like, moved on to other porn sites)?

There are no numbers next the commenter names over there. How am I supposed to feel superior to the newbie commenters six months from now???

What he said.

jolie (#16)

Granted, I don't like change, my feelings were hurt that I didn't merit a beta password and I'm tired because I slept badly due to a nightmare in which Alex Balk was menacing me via this very website, so take this with a grain of pink Himalyan salt: I've clicky-clicky'd, and now I'm both ticked off and confused.


jolie (#16)

(Now I feel bad. I'm sorry. Thank you for posting the Sister Wives trailer, I'm most appreciative!)

Booo. No vanity commenter numbers.

Bettytron (#575)

Right?! I rushed over there hoping to make it in the two digits this time.

DoctorDisaster (#1,970)

You people are terrible.

Rod T (#33)

That shouldn't be a priority.

Multiphasic (#411)

Right? I mean, I'm okay with my 411 and all, but it's sort of like having been at the 17th Fugazi show. That was a pretty early Fugazi show! But you say, "Yeah, dude, the 17th Fugazi show," and then people punch you in the face and steal your backpack. That's what people do, always. Fucking 411.

helliott (#4,354)

it's funny because it's not funny.

biggyshorty (#4,492)

as a web developer and a waaaaaaay-too-avid reader, can i PLEASE suggest a bunch of improvements to your web platform? wordpress can be taken in such great directions with the right caresses… you guys need better logins, better comment tracking, more "of interest" connections (without being icky social media-ish), and you already have all the login info with the registered people!!

Abe Sauer (#148)

Get off Balk's lawn.

Which site is better for weather related moaning? It got hot again.

keisertroll (#1,117)


I got an ad for mint-flavored snuff.
