    "Wasn't for me, but ..."

    I have given this a very low rating, but I want to be fair. I don’t think the content was poorly done and I think the author achieved what s/he intended, I just didn’t find it funny.

    This is a collection of mostly unconnected short stories written in the style of tabloid articles where the subjects are various characters from folklore. Things like Cinderella gets google glasses and accidently calls her step mother or the Beat and Bell get into a fight over his behavior.
    Each story is about 3-5 minutes long and basically works like setup a slightly odd situation include a fairy tale character, play it out and use sensationalized language.

    It didn’t connect with me, I got about half way through and just turned it off. However, I could see people liking it who also like people magazine and similar celeb gossip mags. It did a technically good job of satirizing the writing style and topic selection of such publications.
