Philadelphia, PA—Fallout from the above picture has left The Daily Discord seeking legal counsel. A recent post led readers to believe Discord reporter, Cokie McGrath, was on the scene in Afghanistan conducting a survey on The Mating Rituals of Hunky Military Types. But, if you look closely at the top of the image, you can clearly see the bottom of the lettering for The New York Times. In fact, the picture is identical to a Times story from December 13th.
“It looks as if someone just snapped a shot of our newspaper cover and called it their own,” said Bill Keller, the NY Time’s Executive Editor. “This isn’t the first time we’ve had a run in with this group, although this is brazen even for them. They’re a menace to the world wide web.”
“Preposterous!” replied the Discord’s CEO Pierce Winslow. “I have the receipt for McGrath’s plane ticket, her bar tab from Kabul, and several prescriptions for Oxycodone.”
But when pressured, Winslow was unable to produce this documentation—except the prescriptions. Despite the overwhelming evidence, Winslow remains unwilling to make any retraction for The Discord’s controversial post, nor is he willing to stop exploiting hunky military types.
“We’re on the side of the truth,” said Winslow. “When we say we’re on location, we’re on location…and, apparently, sometimes we’re on booze and opiates.”
