I’ve always thought the Onion’s coverage of God’s post-9/11 press conference was a shining moment—a bracing blast of righteous fury tempered with bleak humor that has you smiling at the audacity instead of the funny and fully intends there to be nothing but crickets heard at the punchline. Whenever a joke goes on too long these days, or an Area Man story gets recycled, I think of it, and I forgive them, for they are mighty. They did the impossible.
And, apparently, it almost got them nominated for a Pulitzer.
