The New Yorker magazine frequently features a short parody news piece. It’s often brainiac comedy but you might catch something by, say, Steve Martin that’s insightful and hilarious. This recent piece by Andy Borowitz begins with the lead:
“No one in the United States has taken note of the total disappearance of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who vanished from view several weeks ago.”
What parts are funny? What isn’t? What do you need to know about Christie for this to work?
