A meticulously crafted fake edition of The New York Times broadsheet is being given away throughout the five boroughs today. Purportedly from July 4, 2009, the future-paper, the work of a team of infamous pranksters, tells of a world gone perfect, one in which the Iraq war is over, maximum wage laws have been enacted and people have collectively decided to stop burning their youths away toiling as lawyers and businessmen. It's a great gag, but also a cruel one—your eyes will never see these headlines on an authentic newspaper.
Check out the online edition here before the real Times sues everyone into hell.
Oh man! I think someone tried to give me a free Times today. What if it was this one? Damn me and my refusal to take free paper items.
I believed the story for a full 5 seconds and now I am afraid I will forget it was a fake. I will be at a dinner party talking about how glad I am that Harvard did this, someone will tell me it was a fake, and I will say something stupid like - ohhh yeah i remember that now but i really thought it was real. Then everyone will be unimpressed with my obviously fake face-saving attempt.
Wow…Cord finally posted a stab at Obama.
How is it a stab at Obama? The world will never be perfect, no matter who is in the White House.
It is a stab at Obama because it's headlines are all things he said is going to do once in the white house. And as the writer said it something that will never hapen.
Wait what? I swear the graphic said, harvard to close its business schools doors… i was thinking the joke was that it keeps churcning out economy killers. Now the headlines about iraq war WHAT HAPPENED.
I ask myself whether it's april 1st very often lately.
Well Cord , now isn't the time for you to give fair treatment to BOTH candidates as one has won the election. Now someone tell me, does Barack Hussein Obama also walk on water? Sad day for America….November 4, 2008 this country committed suicide
oh pattymatt, shove it directly up your ass, crap it out, and then jam it in there again.
STM gets my vote for the commies
Haven't you realized Patty that using his middle name DIDN'T WORK???
nobody is afraid of that name except for right wing pussies like yourself
Patty pee pants! Patty pee pants!
Why do the crazies from the election keep saying "Obama won, get over it, I thought this was an entertainment site", and then keep bringing it up again? I've been reading Mollygood for the commenters for almost 2 years now. Love you Cord & Whitney, but sar, stm, keebler, queencrone, Sarah, etc. keep me coming back. So when the repub crazies come to this battles of wits unarmed, on the one hand, I enjoy their asses being handed to them on their way out, on the other, I wish they more pride than to keep coming back.
*battle of wits.
yes, patty. yes, he DOES walk on water.
he's the messiah…didn't you see his image on the toast up above?
I GOT LISTED FIRST! FUCK YALL!
