Save the (fake) news

The New York Times' business section reported Monday that somebody, apparently from The Wall Street Journal, is buying a bunch of copies of My Wall Street Journal, which will be published Tuesday and looks like this.

"I'd find it amusing if they bought all 250,000," Tony Hendra, editor in chief of the spoof, told the Times. "We could print more."

The "newspaper" also features "ads," like this one.

Which is funny, until you realize that the spoof is $3.95, plus shipping.

Rupert Murdock can have them all.
