SR news is a fictional newspaper taking place in a sort-of-realistic but imaginary world around Edmonton, AB. In this world are humans, coexisting with a strange animals called rockmen. Rockmen greatly resemble human fists, can talk, and are quite smart. But not as smart as people. They tend to be rude and primitive, too. SR news includes a number of “mini-countries” that fight for land. Some resemble countries like Canada or the USA, while others are extremely weird. (like Groinland and the Republic of Moist!)
One more thing, things change fast in these mini-countries! They are always at risk of destruction from anything like the Canadian police force, other mini-countries becoming more successful than them, or armies of rockmen killing them. It is definitely “survival of the fittest!”
Enjoy. These newspapers are published more or less weekly. I hope you find them funny!
Here’s a more detailed introduction:
A brief description of the mini-countries existing on January 15, 2012: (in one of the first issues)
