April Fool's Day parodies of Salon are sort of a proud web tradition. Our pals at Teevee.org put up a great one two weeks ago, which I'm sorry I didn't spot at the time. Highlights include a Tom Tomorrow takeoff, the anonymous "Confessions of a Semi-Successful Fanfic Writer," and, inevitably, "How George W. Bush Ruined Television." Not everything's fall-down funny, but it's an unusually deep parody—they even take off Salon's Table Talk discussions ("…having a Canadian actress play the star of an American TV show is just a perfect example of how the Bush administration is letting outsourcing and NAFTA get out of hand"). Good stuff.
