Talk.bizarre is a Usenet newsgroup consisting of equal parts no-holds-barred creative writing, scatology, and stupidity. It is one of the oldest newsgroups on Usenet, dating from before The Great Renaming, and has some of the most venerable traditions. Oldbies seek to enforce standard of quality for newbies, and, in doing so, can be a bit rough. The group is occasionally invaded by fools. They are not suffered gladly.
