REASON HAS POSTED THIS “PARODY” OF THE CORNER by Tim Cavanaugh. I don’t think it’s funny — just kind of mean and lame. It’s not Mad Magazine-level parody, which is what it’s shooting for. I don’t think it’s even Cracked-level parody. Cavanaugh wrote a pretty good piece on “message” pictures in this month’s Reason, but I find that his efforts to be humorous just come across as , well, mean and lame. I’m kind of surprised that Reason went with this.

UPDATE: But The American Prospect’s “Tapped” likes it.
