Schooly G Performance Creates Controversey; "N Word" Uttered
Schooly G, who rose to fame on the internet podcast The Comic Book Haters, appeared onstage at the Yuk Palace trying to regain ground after his disastrous solocast the previous week. Schooly began his attack shortly into his first set, screaming at one of the men, "Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f***ing Jughead comic up your ass."
The crowd was visibly and audibly shocked but an enraged Schooly continued on, "You can talk, you can talk, you're brave now motherf**ker. Throw his comic book reading, nerd ass out. He's a nerd! He's a nerd! He's a nerd! A nerd, look, there's a nerd!"
Some of the audience began to leave at this point but Schooly responded by saying "They're going to arrest me for calling a comic book loser a nerd." Eventually someone in the crowd replied: "It's not funny. That's why you're a reject, never had no podcasts, never had
no funnybooks. `The Comic Book Haters,' that's it." Schooly G performed the next night at the Yuk Palace without incident.
Calls to his representatives were not returned Monday. The Comic Book Haters camp are expected to make an official statement later this week, however, founding member DJ Sloofus had this to say when confronted at a local funnybook store which he claimed to abandon long ago: "It was bound to happen sooner or later. I mean the guy has problems...he's a self loathing, funnybook fan who just won't admit it...did I mention he's also gay?"
British comic book author and CBH whipping boy Warren Ellis told our British affiliate "Good...that wanker had it coming...F*** Schooly G!"
Prop comic Carrot Top, who followed Schooly G that evening, remarked that "Using the N word like that just isn't funny...when you call someone a comic book reading n**d it's hurtful...lots of people enjoy comics, but rubbing it in by saying something like that is just crossing the line." After the incident Carrot Top tried to lighten the mood by by doing a bit about Schooly's mom aided by a trash can prop.

CBH Solocast Controversey: Cappy Happy due to Inevitable Relapsey?
Beloved roustabout Cappy, a naivish waif better known for his misguided attempts at wooing museum tour guides than his expertise within the realm of podcasting, recently shocked the world with a ballot-shattering Solocast submission. Unsubstantiated rumors stemming from the Schooly G camp are implying that Cappy could quite possibly have used steroids to achieve his high results.
Drug testing within the CBH world has previously been handled under the "Don't Ask, Don't Bogart" clause, a rather lenient policy which may need to be rectified for future endeavors. "I hope to God he didn't do something stupid," said CBH co-founder DJ Sloofus. "When I sober up, I'm going to sit down and have a stern talking with that young man. Or maybe one of the young bitches that lives near him, at least." CBH News will provide updates to this story as they become available.

CBH Crew Debuts Newest Sensation: The Solocast
“That’s just one of the many surprises we’ve got planned,” explained DJ Sloofus. “We’re also talking about chips and snacks, balloons, and I think we might even get a smoke machine.”
Over the course of the past year, the CBH podcast has produced over 70 episodes, 8 celebrity interviews, various specials, is continually spotlighted as a "Featured" podcast on iTunes, and has generated singles of fan-produced emails.
Speaking of the format for the Solocasts, “There are no rules,” says Sloofus, “except, I think we all agreed, ‘No Cursing.’” Conversely, Schooly G responded with “Fuck that shit.” The Solocasts are scheduled to air the week of November 12th. Check local listings, or refer to iTunes for more information.
