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

Overview

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.

I bought this for my son two years ago when he was 8... he is still reading it! He puts it away and every few months pulls it out. It never fails to make him laugh.
