Fun with National Lampoon Financial Releases

While National Lampoon’s stock hasn’t been entertaining of late (which may admittedly change, given the current fondness for online comedy plus the advertising boom), it’s still nice to see that the company’s quarterly financial releases make for funny reading, even if not entirely unintentional. There is something about the following collection of properties, when presented in a just-the-facts financial press release, that tickles:

“Our Internet content strategy continues to
flourish with hits such as ‘National Lampoon’s 72 Virgins,’ ‘Star
Wars, X-Wing Pilots – the Deleted Scene’ and our newest property, ‘Fat
Guy Nation.’”

“I am also excited to welcome the traffic from our newest
acquisition, DrunkUniversity.com.”

“Fat Guy Nation” and “DrunkUniversity.com”. You know, you never see that sort of thing being talked about in a GE release.
