Welcome to SISSY!

Hey there chump! welcome to SISSY, the secret lovechild of old $kool Sassy mag and BLAIR - and written entirely by celebrities. Does mayim Bialik count as a celebrity? ...uhm, yeah.

so check it. the story goes that our much beloved sassy was bought and sold and the entire staff replaced by a new child safety lock staff - a staff who chose the word guido as their first new Glossary word of the month. Yeah, racist and like entirely pre-82? ...at least it's not SUBVERSiVE.

anyhow, sIssy is the LOST dec'94 issue of sAssy - the last issue EVER, never published before, syquests still at the printers, etc. It was gonna be put out as a paper zine, but everyone was too bummed out, and where the fuck did those disks go?! blair got slipped the ratty 3rd gen xeroxes and the rest is all here, revamped for the web. woo hoo!!

read up kid.
