Prize Onion
Two weeks after September 11, The Onion released its "Holy Fucking Shit" issue about the attacks. Turns out the issue actually got some consideration for a Pulitzer prize, although it wasn't officially nominated. Too bad--of all the millions of words written about 9/11 in the immediate wake of the disasters, few captured the essence of those awful days better than "American Life Turns Into Bad Jerry Bruckheimer Movie" or "Not Knowing What Else to Do, Woman Bakes American Flag Cake." And as for "God Angrily Clarifies No Kill Rule"--that's the greatest thing The Onion ever published.
