236hffgg.pngFBNY has learned that 23/6, the online humor site launched in 2006, has been downsized to three staffers and has closed its offices. The site will continue as a Huffington Post vertical, to be run out of the HuffPo offices, and will use freelance pieces from the staffers who have been let go. We’re told that Sarah Bernard, former HuffPo GM and president of 23/6 is not staying on.

Huffington Post acquired 23/6 earlier this month from IAC after the company pulled its support at the end of 2008.
