Fake News Site Asks for Real Pulitzer

I can't lie, I'm a little jealous that a line of famous and/or influential people are lining up to support The Onion and their seemingly expensive campaign to win a Pulitzer Prize. Sure, we'd love a Pulitzer here at the Weekly, but we're not likely to get Tom Hanks to record a YouTube video on our behalf or a New York Times article on the quest. Then again, we also don't have a series of best-selling books or two TV shows, so maybe that helps. I'm not entirely sure what The Onion would earn a Pulitzer for ("Most Entertaining Infographics?"), but I'd rather they win one than the Star, so best of luck.
