UnrelatedTopic.com is a satire website dedicated mostly to political and social parodies and created by me, That_One_Ben. As you may have surmised from my elitist, yet charmingly folksy, writings, I am a college student currently attending one of Michigan’s fine public institutions. I had no real reason to create this site other than to share, and hopefully entertain, others with the creative outlet I have found in satire. I’m a rather quiet guy from the Midwest who probably has a rather unhealthy admiration for The Daily Show,The Colbert Report, and The Onion, so if you like those but can’t stand the years of refined comedic excellence, then you will love this site. I’m sure I’ll grow in skill overtime, but just bare with me right now as I learn. Who knows, you may one day decode my convoluted sentence structure and see a decent joke.
As this site is predominantly political in makeup, I hope the average voice of my articles does not fall within the extremes of our political landscape where all is either fire and brimstone or arctic tundra, but rather that it lands within the moderating realm of centrism where the rivers are honey and ones only companion is intense, unrelenting anger. I realize, however, that as the author of so much, if not all, of this website’s content, my review of the texts will inevitably be warped by my own fancies, whether consciously or otherwise. With such a crippling caveat in mind, I must, therefore, call upon you the reader, or, as it is much more likely, you the overly caffeinated middle-aged pessimist still clinging to the frayed tatters of your once youthful idealism, to judge my works as you see fit. Is an article unfair in its portrayal of a current political event? Why, good sir or madam, I implore you to sound the alarm by comments most vivaciously. Do you disagree with my interpretation of future economic development? Send me an email detailing your dissenting view, or regale us with your insight in the comment section.
I will try as best I can to update whenever possible.
In the future, I hope to add podcasts and videos so as to appeal to the illiterate. Also, if you would like to contribute in any way, simply contact me and I will be more than willing to help give you a voice on the site.
