TWF NOW HIRING!
 
That's right, TWF is currently looking to hire brand new columnists to possibly fill full-time Wednesday and Thursday slots respectively. So, if you're interested in joining the team of twisted sarcastic misfits here at TWF, please send a sample column HERE, with your chosen column title name in the subject line, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
 
With that said, the criteria for writing here is as follows:
 
-An original column idea or concept. Uniqueness is key. As is creativity. Something that not only sets you apart from other sites, but from the writers we already have here. We are especially looking for a columnist who might have a totally unique and original style of column, or one that takes a look at wrestling in ways not normally seen everywhere else.There's tons of "opinion pieces" out there, so straight commentaries on the state of wrestling would probably be better served to being posted in the forum.
 
-Spell check your work. No one will take a column seriously that is spelled incorrectly or possesses huge grammatical errors. Read your work over, and edit it accordingly before submitting it.
 
-Keeping a deadline is incredibly important. You can by all means miss a column every once in a while if something comes up, but 24 hours notice is required, or you'll be immediately released. No-showing isn't fair to other writers who have to fill in for these missed columns on such short notice.
 
-A basic knowledge of the product. Self-explanatory. If you've ever read a column here, and had no idea what was being said, you might not be cut out for this particular website.
 
-No attitude problems or huge egos. The entire staff of TWF gets along and works as a team. We'd like to keep it that way.
 
-Humor is encouraged. You don't have to be the funniest dude in the world, nor do you have to try too hard to "get over", however, sarcasm and wit is necessary. We're not a straight site that reports news or gives serious commentaries. We're a satire site first and foremost, so don't take yourself or your work too seriously. As a side note, you don't have to be incredibly bitter about the product. In fact, a good majority of us, myself included, write in a certain style as a "gimmick", and really do love Pro Wrestling. After all, why would we waste so much time writing about it, if we hated everything? Wrestling at its core is both awesome and absurd at the same time. Have fun with it.
 
-If you're ever approached with a bloody knife and glove, by all means, hide it for us, and never speak of its whereabouts. Thanks~!
 
Ok, that's it.

SATIRE: DISCONTINUED WWE XMAS PRODUCTS!

by Sean Carless

With Christmas just around the corner, what better way to spend your few remaining dollars (left over after the seemingly infinite line-up of fucking pay-per-views ) then on the following "quality WWE merchandise!" After all, if they don't move this stuff, and fast, stockholders just might get time to figure out what "plummeting domestic buyrates" means!... and well, I don't think they need to tell you what that means! (Seriously. They're not telling you. Everything is fine! Ahem.).
