The Onion, the world’s best source for sarcastic headlines, is launching a campaign to get itself a Pulitzer Prize. According to The New York Times, the push comes alongside the paper’s 1,000th issue, and includes support from Gayle King, because why wouldn’t it include support from her?
The paper is also asking readers to chip in:
The Onion is also asking ‘concerned citizens’ to sign a form letter and ‘mail it to the pieces of garbage’ at the actual Pulitzer board office at Columbia. The letter’s salutation doesn’t lack for subtlety. ‘You Ignorant, Negligent Swine,’ it begins.
FishbowlNY officially pledges its fake support for this fake effort.
