The Yes Men — the left-wing guerilla practical-jokers who distributed a phony issue of the New York Times last year — have struck again, this time with a mock New York Post filled with articles, editorials, and ads concerned with the environment.
Some of the highlights:
- A series of bad reviews for both the federal government and the world leaders gathering at the UN this week.
- An advertisement for sex as an alternative form of entertainment to travel. “Why travel? You just wanted to get laid anyway, right?”
- An article on low impact sports arguing that Wimbledon should switch be played on clay, “like we do over here.” Who knew the Post’s sports bureau was based in Europe?
The issue is already generating controversy. New York police even detained volunteers who tried to distribute copies outside the Post‘s offices, confiscating their papers, AOL’s Jeff Bercovici reports.
