Yes, yes. Intercouse, PA. It's hilarious on a 4th grade level. (Hee. Hee. Intercourse.) But hear me out. Whilst at a horribly beardy historical nerd gaming convention located directly across the street from fantabulous DUTCH WONDERLAND, I stopped off at a Wawa. As I chewed on my tasty sandwich, I spied a freebie newspaper bin. Seeing as I was degenerating on the curb for lunch with no one ta' talk to, I picked up the freebie paper. I nearly choked when I actually looked at it. The front page is just pure comedy gold/unfortunate placement of words. Besides the whole Intercourse News thing. "Lancaster county is about families doing things together." Sweet. I think my favorite bit is the excitable COUPONS! COUPONS! text in the corner. The calibration is off, the design is slap dash, and the ghost of white space rules the day. It's a true piece of free (as in cost) journalism.
