In a bold move yesterday, a major North American company declared gravyboy.com to be "Entertainment."

"This is unexpected." said GravyBoy writer and website manager Marty Blevins.

After two years gravyboy.com has finally seemed to reach the coveted status of "entertaining". Though a highly subjective term, it seems that the creators of the independant comic have reached the next stage in their sequential journey.

"I just went to pull it up at work," said Blevins "and suddenly I get the message: 'The category 'Entertainment' is filtered.'"

The hard work and dedication poured into the book, online strips, and podcasts by Blevins and GravyBoy artist, Brian Shearer, has added more and more content to the site in recent months.

"We've been working pretty hard." says Shearer "In addition to our day jobs, it can get to be quite a time-consuming task. I'm just glad that someone at the IT department finally took notice." Shearer also added that up until this point the site must have been coming across as "mildly amusing." "At least now we have an offical standing." he said.

So what does this mean for the future? Blevins and Shearer can only guess, but rest assured the sky's the limit. "I suppose," added Blevins "I'll have to spend less time at work now."

What's the step after entertaining?

PS. This sounds like something I'd write for Monkey News.

Ebaum's is blocked because the category "Tasteless" is filtered. I'm thinking that's the next step up.
