The Black Sheep Online was born on a cold Chicago day in early 2009, as two men sat in an office working on a comedy periodical. "These jokes are really funny," said one. "Yeah, and we're totally handsome!" said the other. Then, like two players hitting the final cup in beer pong at the same time, they blurted out, "We need a website to share our newspaper with the world!"
You see, for years we’ve run hilarious newspaper at schools across the country, but once we learned about this interweb thing, we realized we should be online as well. After more talk and hours spent staring into the mirror, they finally called someone about how to build a website, which, it turns out is quite hard. They threw their hats into the ring, and to celebrate the guys did a slow motion high five, then a star wipe happened and a dream was born.
What we're most proud of at The Black Sheep online is our original content. Everything you read on the site is written by our stable of college-age writers who bust their ass for tens of minutes a week to crank out comedy we think you'll enjoy, whether it's about sex, drugs, abstinence, or rock and roll. Though we're all here to have a good time, we take the whole writing thing pretty seriously. We think our comedy is top notch, and if you think otherwise we have a copy of Seinlanguage we'll mail to you.
The most important thing, for us at least, is that you have a good time when you read our nice little website. If you think something is good, let us know! If you think something sucks let us know that too, because we can change. We can change! Just give us a second chance!
So come on in and hang out awhile, won't you? We have some half-full cans of Keystone Light in the fridge if you're thirsty, and if you ask real nice we might microwave our last Hot Pocket for you, it's a ham and cheese one!
