The makers of comedy website Thing X, which was launched by Adult Swim and a bunch of ex-Onion writers in October, announced this morning that the website ThingX.com will be going away. The staff of Thing X, however, and the site's content will be moving to AdultSwim.com where they can reach a larger audience, presumably still under the Thing X moniker. It's only the url ThingX.com that is being shut down. Thing X moves to Adult Swim this coming Monday, June 18th, so you have time to go on a big Thing X binge-watching/reading/listening session this weekend.
