The Civilian

Charlie Gates at The Press reports:

A satirical website launched just two weeks ago by a Christchurch man has become an instant hit and is already being heralded as “New Zealand’s answer to The Onion”.

Former University of Canterbury student Ben Uffindell set up The Civilian as a sideline project, but its success has turned the website into his day job.

The irreverent, satirical site gets an average of 15,000 page views a day and already has more than 2000 likes on Facebook.

It’s very good. I’ve been enjoying it a lot.  Some satire is too laboured or try hard, bbut Ben has got the tone just right, in my opinion.

Definitely worth bookmarking.
