Humorality Banner was the brainchild of Tim Patrick, which in itself is somewhat gross given that brains don’t have children, at least not male brains. Trotted out in the summer of 2008, the web site provided years of humorous commentary on events of the era, plus a few serious essays.

While the site is no longer available, its spirit lives on in Break the News to Me Gently, a free ebook collection of humor quips from the site’s parallel Twitter feed.
