Unemployed Reporter Porter
Jon Campbell, who briefly made Hartford a more interesting place with his presence and reporting for the Advocate, has entered the homebrew game with his signature Unemployed Reporter Porter (pictured).
“Porter style beers were first popularized in the nineteenth century by merchant sailors and manual dock laborers,” the label reads. “Unemployed Reporter is crafted in the same tradition, honoring a profession likewise doomed to decline and irrelevance.”
For this new class of “expendables,” the label goes on, “we’ve included chocolate and roasted barley malts that are as dark and bitter as the future of American journalism, and a high alcohol content designed to numb the pain of a slow, inexorable march toward obsolescence. While Unemployed Reporter is especially delicious as a breakfast beer, it’s still smooth enough to be enjoyed all day, every day. And let’s be honest: what else do you have going on?”

“You don’t need a round tuit to get around to it”
Chance seized. Good work guys.
The World’s Largest Round Tuit*
Said to have originated at the 1964 World’s Fair in Queens, NY, The Round Tuit is a most useful tool in fighting procrastination and sloth. Every time you say you’ll do such-and-such when you get around to it, you can now reach for your Round Tuit and get it done!
We made this hand carved Round Tuit in our Minnesota Outpost with the hope that it will be the World’s largest (pending Guinness World Record Committee approval.) Imagine that: a Tuit large enough to serve as an inspiration for everyone everywhere to get around to whatever it is they’ve been putting off!
Material: Salvaged Red Oak
Width: 33.375 inches (at the widest)
Thickness: 4.5 inches
Weight: 59.8 pounds
This is your round tuit.
Actually, it’s everyone’s.
Tuits are very hard to come by, especially round ones of this size.
It should prove to be a valuable and inspirational item.
For years you’ve heard people say, “I’ll do it when I get around to it.”
Well here it is.
A Tuit for everyone, everywhere.
Think of all the things you can accomplish now.
The results will be remarkable!
*Pending Guinness World Record Committee approval
