The witty, irreverent and pun-filled West Seattle FunBlog has been up and running now for over a year and a half and still going strong. Operated by nine West Seattle professionals with “real jobs,” the website is their hobby, their sandbox. Its niche is lampooning other blogs, other news media, and life in West Seattle and beyond, using and abusing sarcasm, political incorrectness, and adult innuendo, including the frequent dropping of the f-bomb without mercy.
The Funbloggers invited the West Seattle Herald to interview them during their weekly meeting at Big Al Brewing in White Center. Problem is, getting factual quotes from this wacky crew seemed as challenging as interviewing Marcel Marceau with a sore throat. That’s not because they were the silent types, but because they chose anonymity and used pseudonyms, covered their faces when photographed, and, who are we kidding? They like to drink beer, which loosens their tongues. And their tongues can get very loose. Heavy editing of their remarks was involved.
