A newspaper with a sense of humor

People who can poke fun at themselves are generally the coolest, so can the same be said about a newspaper? Via Regret the Error, I read that the San Luis Obispo Tribune had reported Santa does not see all of the letters written to him, a story that Kris Kringle found alarming. The Tribune ran a small, apologetic brief the next day and also showed they can poke fun at themselves, with grace:

While Santa had good news for the area’s young letter writers, he had some bad news for The Tribune: “I had a very nice gift for you, but I’ve had to move you to my naughty list.”

Top Tribune officials could not be reached for comment before deadline. They were in a corner taking a timeout for their bad behavior and not allowed to talk.

I gotta say – I have new respect for the San Luis Obispo Tribune.
