Comedian Glen Tickle has created a funny new magazine called Jerk! The Magazine. It’s a magazine about jerks and people can inform someone who they think is a jerk by having a copy of the magazine anonymously sent to them by the publisher. You just need to pay for the service and Tickle will send a magazine to the jerk.
Jerk! The Magazine is a magazine for jerks that you pay us to send to someone you think is a jerk. Picture your least favorite person walking to the mailbox and finding a magazine addressed to them that also tells them what a big jerk they are.
Tickle explains that the magazine puts a focus on “Jerk Culture”, saying:
Jerk! The Magazine is the creation of comedian Glen Tickle who founded comedy label Circus Trapeze Records. There are a lot of people Glen thinks are jerks, and he wanted a way to tell them that they’re jerks, but he also wanted to do it in arguably the most complicated way possible. So he’s creating an entire magazine dedicated to jerks and jerk culture.
Tickle is currently raising funds through Kickstarter in order to cover the cost of printing and shipping of the magazine:
What better time to launch a print magazine than in the middle of global pandemic where the government is trying to dismantle the Post Office? …Our initial goal of $500 will allow us to produce one issue of the magazine. That money will cover the cost of printing and shipping the magazine, as well as helping to pay contributors and artists for their work.
I love this! But having shared this on the site, if anyone I personally know ended up getting a copy of Jerk! The Magazine, they know it would have come from me. But, for the rest of you, have fun!
