Indexed: End of 'The Weekly World News'

I think the site Indexed is funny and very clever, and this card reminded me about the tragic end of one of the most entertaining media creations ever - The Weekly World News magazine:

In high school, me and my friends would religiously read the absurdities contained in The WWN during the pre-internet Dark Ages. Of course the greatest story & accompanying picture ever contained in it was the infamous Bat Boy. I had a T-shirt with this picture on it (that I'm surprised didn't cause me to be committed to an insane asylum by my teachers):

I'm pretty sure my mom used to try
hiding this shirt from me so I couldn't wear it.
