What in tarnation? 🤪 🌹
Spooky is a funny website. We publish posts, cartoons, jokes, etc. We describe it as Fart jokes & anti-capitalism™.
Spooky also makes Work It, a podcast and CFMU radio show about jobs, working and the tragicomedy of late-capitalism.

Business model 📱 💣
Spooky aspires to a business model that rejects engaging with pernicious social media corporations. Here are some sketchy thoughts on what that could look like.
Submissions ✅ 🤡 🚫 🤓
We will be opening submissions soon (get on the mailing list in the footer).
What to submit? Some words we like: absurd, silly, quirky, asinine… We also like things from a leftist/socialist/working class POV. Some words we don’t like: smug, patronising, centrist.
Spooky encourages submissions from members of marginalised groups: people who aren’t white, straight, abled, and/or cis-gender. We also encourage submissions from people who don’t see themselves as ‘comedy writers,’ but have valuable lived experience: poor and working class; (formerly) incarcerated; (formerly) unhoused. If that’s you and you’re interested, don’t be shy. We can work with you on a pitch.
Also, we’ll pay you.
