Greg Karber: check or be checked

Oh, we’re so sad to be running out of contributors to announce–but we’re even happier to announce our final contributor!

Greg Karber is the star of the hit Greg Carber Video Show, which appears every now and then on YouTube and is watched by dozens. Join the totally-not-a-cult at TeamCarber.com or on Facebook at Facebook.com/TeamCarber. We promise there’s no Kool-Aid (for now).
He has previously appeared in the Encyclopedia Show as the Fact Checker, and is excited to present his own work, even though he’s probably the worst person who could possibly be assigned his sub-topic.

Lauren Sweeney (heartbreaker)

We’re a pretty fortunate crew around here. L.S. stands for Lucky Seven, and also…

Philadelphia native Lauren Sweeney is a lapsed dancer, (“lapsed” not “lap,”) and the daughter of two artists. After eight years of all-female education, she did an inexplicable three-year stint in finance. She is currently a writer because it is the only occupation enhanced by a series of poor life decisions.
