HuffPost Attempts Humor About British Sailors, Succeeds About As Well As Can Be Expected

The HuffPost give us a little taste of what the future holds for the Barry Diller-backed humor site 23/6.

Colleen Werthmann (seen above with Royal Marine Danny Masterson) posts Inappropriate Freed-British-Hostage Hottie Rundown! The email from the HuffPost operative says Colleeen is an actor and playwritght, whatever that means.

If she had photo-shop skills, like Phaolo (a gay man) or biting wit like Perez (also a gay man) or she was a gay man, this might have been a lot funnier.

Come to think of it, the HuffPost is curiously devoid of gay men.

And if only Colleen could have found the nude shots.

ETP is funnier writing about the post than the post itself.
