Parodies

I found this recent story on the www.theOnion.com. I think it is a great parody because it uses multiple forms to convey a sense of reality. There is a picture with Bush with a bunch of space stuff behind him, and an illustration of his plan, along with supporting text. All of this is displayed in a very believable format much like many of the major news networks. It has well written, journalistic text with accompanying pictures and illustrations to add to the truth value for the story.

Good parody. Don't forget to post your chapter 1 response. See me with questions.
