HuffPo-AOL Merger Closes Window on Urlesque.com

You wouldn't know it by reading Urlesque.com, but the rogue agents running their Tumblr seem to be affirming developments that the site is getting swallowed up by HuffPo Comedy by linking to a link that links to this reaction at BitShare:

Wow, AOL just dropped another bomb on the Internet. According to a Forbes post an hour ago, AOL is consolidating again.  There are several victims this time, including Urlesque.  If you have never been to the Urlesque site before, check it out, as it may be one of your last chances before AOL shuts it down and folds it under their HuffPost Comedy umbrella.

According to Quantcast, traffic at Urlesque has been steadily dropping. It's hard to compete and stand out when you're going head to head with a trend churning behemoth like Buzzfeed. It seems like they had something fun and original going with The Urly Show though. Will anything from the site survive the merger?
