This Is Amusing

The AP Stylebook, for the uninitiated, is a sort of Bible for editors - a guide to the proper spelling and usage of words. Ever wonder if it's "Web site" or "website?" The Stylebook has your answer.

Well, turns out there's a Fake AP Stylebook, too, on the Interzone. Check out the Twitter feed, it's quite amusing. Some recent entries:

Charities only ever do anything around Christmas, so limit coverage on them to mid-to-late December.

References to pop culture should resonate with your remaining readers, so avoid mentioning any works released after 1982.

Articles about MySpace should probably include its URL, since, you know, people have probably forgotten by now.

Package your newspaper with incentives to lure new readers, such as wrapping it around a delicious hoagie.
