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.

    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

  2. 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!

  3. Laughing with appreciation in the belly of Pennsylvania,

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

  6. 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.

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

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

  10. 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.
