Our review: Should you see Raya and the Last Dragon?

Marty reviews the latest new feature film streaming on Disney+. UNCLE WALT'S H.Q., SVALBARD -- Raya and the Last Dragon debuted on Disney+ last Friday, and parents, kids, and those weird Disney fans that aren't in either of those two categories are wondering: should I watch it? Fortunately for our readers, having Disney+ on our 18" office TV is one of the few perks our Uncle Walt gives us here. We think it's just because he copied a neighbor's login info when helping ...

The Uncle Walt's Insider team discusses what 2021 has in store for us. Marty: Do we really want to do a prediction article? I mean, it's still December when we're writing this. I'm not convinced we're even going to make it to 2021. Walt: Marty, not if you keep eating those cookies from 2018 that you found in Harriet’s desk. I do think we should do a prediction article. It’s all the rage for a new year. Maybe a top 100 countdown as well? And ... Read more

INSIDER EXCLUSIVE: What this map of United States reveals is shocking

All the other websites have maps. Why not us? UNCLE WALT'S INSIDER H.Q., SVALBARD -- In what can only be described as "shocking" (it's right there in the headline, see?), a new map of the United States of America provides amazing insight into our current condition. Uncle Walt's Insider is the only place you will see this information, at least until Snopes tries to fact-check us again.

An Open Letter to the Snopes Editorial Staff

Is this necessary? We thought Snopes was satire. UNCLE WALTS INSIDER H.Q., SVALBARD -- Dear Snopes Editorial Staff, We know you had to do it. We know that you had to remind the world that we're a satire web site (here and here). You've sworn an oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. We understand. You're just doing your job. But, at the same time, we see how you described us. Reading between the lines, we sense the ... Read more
