Lady At (Penis!) Archie Comics Sounds Like (Penis!) Loads Of Fun To Work For (Penis!)
So it looks like Yr Doktor Zoom has landed on the Comix Beat today, what with that funnybook review we did earlier, and then a story about unoriginal cartoon character Allen West, and now this bizarre story about a gender discrimination suit against the co-CEO of Archie Comics. The Universe is sending a message, and that message is "time to get to work on that My Little Pony meets Maus crossover fanfic, buddy." (To be fair, the Universe tends to mumble.)
So! Attend the tale of Nancy Silberkleit -- her tongue was harsh and her tact was slight. She's being sued for gender discrimination by a group of male employees who allege that, among other things, she was in the habit of calling them "penis" instead of referring to them by their actual names. The suit also claims that, during at least one business meeting, she just started yelling "Penis! Penis! Penis!" Sounds like a typical day at Wonkette.com, frankly.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
