About

The Wicked Wasabi is the satirical weekly of the Diplopundit blog. Diplopundit will continue to have regular updates four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday), and occasionally on weekends, when needed. We plan to set aside Wednesdays for some levity although the other option we’re considering is making Wednesday the mid-week break and publishing TWW on weekends.

TWW aims to be a satirical Foreign Service weekly. So, once a week, we’ll all get to laugh at ourselves and, well, at stuff that needs laughing at. Because — hey, we only live once, and darn it, we’re not going to let the nuttynutnut world makes us crazy. The Wicked Wasabi will be clearly identified as a satirical weekly, and to that end, we’ve decided to get TWW its own domain so it has separate digs from Diplopundit.

Folks with no sense of humor (yup, looking at some pals at the State Department), are welcome to look away. If folks can’t look away, or can’t keep their eye rolls in their sockets or their laughters in a single file — well, some WD-40 and duct tape might help. That is, like the Internet folks say, if it doesn’t move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn’t, use the tape.
