About Gawker

Gawker is a sharp and funny website. They are irreverent, iconoclastic, new, and strange, and they seek to raise questions about the structure of the world around us. They train their eye on worthy targets with skepticism and ire. Gawker abhors the sanctimonious, the indignant, the self-righteous, and the needlessly cruel. They try to have fun.
