Newgrounds Acquires I-Mockery 2006-04-01 01:20:50 Reply

GLENSIDE, April 1 -- Newgrounds.com, Inc. today announced the acquisition of popular comedy portal, I-Mockery.com. Thomas Fulp, president of Newgrounds.com, obtained approval from investors to purchase I-Mockery and rebrand it as I-Grounds, the Newgrounds comedy portal.

"Newgrounds is a popular entertainment site, but so is I-Mockery. By owning I-Mockery, we become a single more popular company. It's sort of like how if you have two six year olds, they have a combined age of 12. Now we can beat up the 10 and 11 year olds."

Fulp said, "Also, we get to count all our traffic on Media Metrix under a single umbrella, so advertisers will think we are more popular than we really are."

Roger Barr, founder of I-Mockery.com, has assured his visitors the acquisition is in the best interest of I-Mockery.

As an adminstrator on this site today, I'm upset that I was not told beforehand of this. I should shut each site down out of anger.

I don't think anything will ever top that. That was unbelivable.
This was a HUGE improvment on Nummagrounds though... Good Job Thomas!
