Remember that little Piss and Vinegar thing that used to be such a big part of Well, it’s had all sorts of sex and birthed forth an offspring destined to eat it and take over the countryside.

The Nation’s Punched. The rant site from the makers of By makers I mean me. Scared yet?

The idea is this:

A think tank of contributors, some CHUD familiars and message board folks and others from different places around the map all adding their own little form to rants on everything from entertainment to politics to relationships to the unexplained to aspects of our culture worth noting. It’ll be my primary online destination from now on as CHUD grows and grows and I try to use some non-film parts of my infantile brain.

The sites are buddies, though they don’t really share the same focus. The goal is to have fun and how Nation’s Punched works is that each article in one of thirteen categories is delivered in one of five blows from Light Jab to Haymaker, depending on the severity of the attack. The results will be humorous, thought-provoking, meanspirited, or just plain dumb. You decide.

And please… tell me what you think of our launch. 53 articles right out the gate. Not too shabby.

So, without further ado, please enjoy the latest in our little world of websites:
