About the Skunk

Braddon Mendelson with Skunkie AwardBelieve it or not, the most asked question from some of our baffled readers is: “Is this for real?”

Hmm, let’s see, the subtitle to this award-winning online magazine is “Tasteless American Satire for the Ill-Informed.”

If that doesn’t tip you off, then I will admit it: The articles are 100% made-up, but the satire behind them is as real as John McCain’s confusion about shiites and sunnis.

Despite the disclaimer, occasionally (more often than you’d believe), someone actually believes some of this crap, for example the Tennessee woman who thought it was legal to print her own money, because she read it here.

The Skunk is an equal-opportunity offender. Okay, maybe we’re a little heavier handed with the Republicans, but nobody escapes the clutches of a motivated humorist.

If one of the articles makes you laugh like a silly school girl or angers you like Bill Clinton on a press junket, I take full credit or blame, as I single-handedly write everything you see in this site, much to the distress of my parents, who wanted me to be a tap-dancer (or was it lap-dancer?)
