Disney XD Airs Game Of Thrones


Game Of Thrones To Air Censored On Disney XD

The hit fantasy television drama infamous for its blood, gore, and tits will start airing a bloodless, gore-less, and tit-less syndicated version on Disney XD.

Tyrion Lannister, as played by Peter Dinklage, will soon be gaining more fans now that the television drama he's most famous for starring in will be expanding its audience through syndication.

The Disney–ABC Television Group recently entered into a partnership with Home Box Office (HBO) to acquire the syndication rights for Game of Thrones, with plans to broadcast the series on its cable channel, Disney XD.

The decision to acquire the award-winning television drama was inspired by the recent success of Doctor Who, which has been airing its David Tennant seasons on the company’s pre-teen-oriented channel, Disney XD.

This would not be the first time that HBO has allowed its more popular television series to air on other channels, as series such as Sex and the City, Entourage, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, currently air in syndication.

However, this will be the first time that a family-friendly channel will air one of its more not-so-family-friendly series. As such, the syndicated version of Game of Thrones will be highly-edited and censored to meet Disney’s squeaky-clean standards.

Daily Bungle Newsroom Returns


Daily Bungle Newsroom Returns From Dystopian Trump Future

Newsroom returns from 50 years into the future where Donald Trump became president.

The Daily Bungle newsroom building has returned nearly one month after having mysteriously vanished without a trace.

Though its staff members, who had disappeared along with the building, have all returned safely, according to their accounts, they barely managed to return from what they call a distant future where Donald Trump became president.

The newsroom vanished nearly one month ago after one of the news reporters brought back a crystal skull that he found within a southwest town in order to examine for a news story.

The entire newsroom and its staff, save for one intern who was out on a donut and coffee run, had disappeared from its physical location without a trace. The intern has since been reimbursed for the coffee and donuts.

Though local scientists and psychics had been contacted during the time of the newsroom’s absence, none were able to offer a proper explanation, either natural or supernatural, for its disappearance and recent reappearance, though most had speculated the cause to be the mysterious crystal skull.

While the recently-returned staff members also lack an explanation for how the newsroom disappeared, they have been able to confirm where—or rather, when—they disappeared to.
