“It took me quite a while to find an editorial approach in relation to the writers of The Other Newspaper, which I could answer for and formulate in a simple manner. It wasn’t until the connection between courage and commonplaces dawned on me that I understood the purpose of the newspaper. We are used to seeing courage as courage to the uncommon, but what if I say that courage is courage to the ordinary?”
“Take a man and put him into the world. See! Already the situation becomes baroque, mysterious and charged with energy and potential. The ordinary is uncommon, so I would like to have people on The Other Newspaper who just want so-called ordinary humor.”
Hello? Who am I talking to?
“This is the editor. How may I help?”
I want to buy a new mouthpiece for my mouthpiece.
“Are you sitting with your mouthpiece now?”
“What’s does it read?”
It reads: Do you want to be a writer on The Other Newspaper? Do you have the courage to join a consensus-building, creative and quite loosely connected group that will probably slowly become friends because our cooperation is based on trust, openness and respect?
(Most articles on The Other Newspaper are fictitious. The purpose of The Other Newspaper is to give the public a new, disturbing and humorous reflection of the way we consume news on traditional media and posts on the social media that make the recipient question whether the world needs to change and whether one can live online.)
