Welp, it looks like The Babylon Bee should start packing it in. The Washington Post just declared them not funny. 😭

Sad!

According to our moral and intellectual superiors at The Washington Post, where Democracy Dies In Darkness™, The Babylon Bee is NOT funny!

New York Times reporter Kevin Roose identifies the moment as when the platform suspended the Babylon Bee, a conservative (and worse) version of the Onion. The thing was, Musk likes the Babylon Bee. He thinks the Babylon Bee is funny. (It's not!)

Well, it was a good run, Bee.

1.6 million Twitter followers, 1.3 million on Facebook, nearly 1 million on YouTube, and 1.8 million on Instagram are all, sadly, mistaken.

Molly Roberts at WaPo says The Babylon Bee is the worse and not funny version of The Onion.

A teensy event in the vast timeline of the internet inspired him to action — because, to him and his very particular tastes, it mattered. What's more, while this episode might have had something to do with the larger cause of free expression, it also had to do, more specifically, with comedy.

Elon Musk bought Twitter because they banned a bunch of Christians that refuse to accept gender theory, and big ol' Washington Post is mad about it on behalf of the massive legacy media complex.

Nope, definitely nothing funny over at The Bee:

I guess we all need to start looking for new jobs. I just don't know how The Bee will ever recover.

(Maybe they can find a third joke?)
