Call "print newspapers" as "snailpapers" because they arrive with news is 12 hrs old

The Newspaper Death Watch blog webbed by Paul Gillin has a post today about "snailpapers" -- as a term of endearment, although some criticism is implied by the term, too, obviously -- here: (scroll down to item)

ITEM: [He] has come up with a new word for newspapers. He calls
them “snailpapers.” [But] the longtime newspaperman insists this is a
term of endearment, not derision. He thinks maybe if newspapers poked
more fun at themselves instead of getting all righteously indignant
about new media, they would generate more sympathy.
