So, The Onion is trying to get a Pulitzer Prize. They want the "Public Service" one since it's the only category even close to what they do.
And, you can help - by signing their online petition.
What's really funny about this is that they've managed to get celebrities, journalists and politicians on their side. People ranging from Dave Barry to Tom Hanks have sent in videos
demanding that they be put into consideration.
Meanwhile on The Onion site itself they've centered their campaign around insulting nearly everyone who has ever won a Pulitzer with articles like Son Of Edward R. Murrow Says Father A Real Dirtbag Compared To Onion Reporters
and I Will Now Exact My Revenge On That Jackass Joseph Pulitzer.
