SoylentNews is people

from the staff-released-from-mind-control dept.
Just as quickly as they arrived, our food-based overlords have vanished. The only remains appear to be a dirty frying pan, and and a discarded muffin wrapper. No notification from either the corn muffin or the bacon bloc have been found leading many to suspect foul play. Free of their enslavement, the staff of SoylentNews has restored the site to its previous name and glory, with statements like that "no, we haven't sold out" and "we didn't say that, it was that damn muffin".

In other news, NCommander has returned to his position as head of the site. When asked where he went, all he could say is "I had a really good breakfast".

    I am still savouring the delicious after taste of bacon muffins with bacon seasoning, wrapped in juicy bacon rashers and swimming in bacon sauce.

    I actually thought it was a better name than "SoylentNews".

      I concur. BaconNews > SoylentNews. Tagline like "BaconNews is delicious" or "BaconNews, mmm bacon" or even "BaconNews, a Jim Gaffigan project". Disclaimer, I am clearly not in marketing.

      It is. It's a much, much better name. Though almost anything would be. "Soylent" is a terrible name.

    I just wanted to say thank you to everybody. This is the first April Fool's I've spent on a site running slashcode where it wasn't a non-stop bitch-fest. Instead it was fun! Thanks everybody, you represented Soylent News well.

    Hurr. Hurr. Hurr. That was about as funny as a Mind of Mencia episode.

    No, that's not a compliment.

    If I need my bacon fix, I guess I'll have to go back to my old dealers, Nueskes [nueskes.com] or Thinkgeek. [thinkgeek.com]

    Wellll. This is odd, and a complex drama. I don't think I want to figure out whos version of seemingly rigged events to trust. So I don't think I will be donating money for a while.
