Welcome to Breaking Burgh, a satirical blog serving Western Pennsylvania and beyond.

In case you read that too quickly, it’s SATIRE, so put that lawyer back in your pocket.

Why start this blog?  To make money of coursAs a response to tragic events in Paris during January of 2015, the victims of which must be shamelessly exploited honored by making sure the world has more satire, not less.

Just to prove we will not be cowed, we have chosen for our inaugural post to ridicule an organization of such reverence , with such rabid fanatical followers, that we may well have to go into permanent hiding afterwards, or at least avoid the Northside.

That’s right – we’re making fun of them Stillers.

  2. I appreciate you sharing this blog article. Great.

  3. Very nice article. I absolutely appreciate this website. Keep writing!

  4. i would like to subscribe – how?

  5. I like satire and comedians making jokes about the people in power. I am a Liberal, but is there any particular reason why you cannot muster a brain between you guys, and write something satirical and funny about Joe Biden? I mean, so many of us have buyers remorse that that in itself is a joke. I have heard people saying that they are more angry at Trump today, because he made them vote for Biden. Please try to use your brains and come up with something funny, the Trump jokes are getting old.

    Maybe you can make a joke about Jimmy Carter sitting somewhere in Georgia smiling because he knows that he is no longer the worst President we have had.

  20. Dear Breaking Burgh,

    I enjoy reading your satirical articles. The reason I am contacting you is to tell you about my forthcoming book, Tomorrow’s World.

    The future may not be bright but it’s hilarious

    In tales that criss cross the Atlantic, Tomorrow’s World transports the reader into the future where even dreams can be controlled – but it seems that the future’s not all it’s cracked up to be. In England, Terrence finds himself disillusioned in a world of drudgery, compensation claim drones and a relentlessly rising retirement age. Across the pond, Walter has harnessed the power of age-defying medication in a bid to prosper indefinitely -at any expense. What could possibly go wrong?

    ‘Is the middle class’s destiny to go the way of the passenger pigeon?’

    (40,521 words, 2 1/2 hours reading time)
    Release Date: November 22nd

    With its relentless dark humour and gripping narrative, Tomorrow’s World paints a vivid picture of a future that’s a little too close for comfort.

    “Because in Tomorrow’s World, Guy has seen the writing on the wall. And it’s in emojis.” Adam Riley, Comedian

    If you would like to take a look, you can download a copy of Tomorrow’s World here (Mobi/EPUB/PDF) – https://dl.bookfunnel.com/k2wpuymrqg

    My previous novels include the well-received black comedy, Necropolis – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21898627-necropolis

    Kind regards

    Typical Gubmint screw up. President Trump orders catapults and they deliver trebuchets.

    Hello. I’m a reporter with the AP. We have a joint partnership with Facebook to fact check potentially fake new stories. Facebook pointed out this Breaking Burgh story at the link below as potentially false. It contends that the Trump Organization won a contract to rebuild the Shayrat airbase in Syria. Your site identifies itself as satire, but to be fair, we are still hoping to hear from someone there on the merits of the report, on whether it is true or false.

    Here is a link to the story:


    Please respond or feel free to give me a call. I’m helping out from Anchorage.
    Thank you

    • Lol, things have gotten crazy enough that I can actually believe an AP journalist would believe an article on a site that loudly proclaims it is satire.

      Thank you! Great work! Better than The Onion -on par with Andy Borowitz. Keep on rocking.
      Please put me on your mailing list.

  23. My neighbor here in Arizona sent me a link to a Giant Eagle story in the “Yinzer” section. Knowing that I was an ex-Aliquippan, he wanted to know if I could explain it to him. So I spent some time reading through the site, generally laughing myself silly. I wrote him back, saying that, no, I couldn’t explain Yinzers to a native Arizonan.
    He hasn’t talked to me since.
    Keep up the good work!

  24. Laughing with appreciation in the belly of Pennsylvania,

  25. Please add me to your subscription email list.

  26. Hilarious! Best laugh I’ve had in a while!

  27. Would love to learn about the secret Cabinet practice sessions at an undisclosed area about the size of a football field where all cabinet members learn to march lock-step, North Korean style, and to clap hands rapidly as they applaud when approaching their great leader.

  28. I’d like to sign up to regularly get your blog. Cleverly done.

  30. Thank you – I have laughed ’til I cried today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  31. I shared your drive-less Crown Vic jitney “found in East End, South Side Giant Eagles”. A concerned friend said it was “kinda racist”. I’m interested in your thoughts about that post. It first made me think of the zombie mobile I often saw parked in Edgewood.

    • Jitneyist maybe, though we like to think there’s a fondness for the jitney drivers that comes through. And we bash Uber regularly. We’d also bash Pittsburgh Yellow Cabs if such a thing ever existed.
