Pundit slash


Yes, that would be sexually explicit homoerotic fanfiction featuring news pundits (and fake news pundits, eg. Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert).

Via Making Light. I am now wondering (1) whether there's any Al Jazeera or other Arab media stuff in there (are there Arabic Walid bin Talal slashfictions out on the net somewhere?) and (2) whether and how I can possibly share this with my officemates, who are a natural audience in the "slightly horrified anthropologist" sense, but, damn, who wants to be known as the guy who reads (or even knows about) pundit slash?

On further investigation

The phrases "Al Jazeera slash" and "Walid bin talal slash" (as well as "aljazeera slash", "waleed bin talal slash", "alwaleed slash" and "walid slash") all came up empty on google. I'm not sure whether to be relieved, or to see this as a potential market opportunity.
