It looks like a newspaper, but the resemblance stops there. Ron Barrett’s off-the-wall parody covers such interesting news stories as “Gerbile Elected President of France” and “One-Minute-a-Day School Opens;” an interview with New York’s first teddy bear cab driver; a weather forecast prepared by the United States Bureau of Guessing; an entertainment section with a preview of the new TV season return of “Real Stupid World;” a home and family section with a Dear Gabby column, Your Horoscope, and other ridiculously unhelpful items. And what’s a newspaper without sports and comics? The Nutty News
has it all plus lots of side-splitting advertisements. What’s funnier: Ron Barrett’s illustrations or his fake journalism? Our unscientific poll of five kids was split 50/50.From the Trade Paperback edition.
