The Onion, tired of being treated as a second-class news source by the Pulitzer Board, has initiated a petition to be rewarded the prize this year. They're looking for 200,000,000 signatures. You can support them by checking out the "Americans for Fairness in Awarding Journalism Prizes" Tumblr, following @AFAJP on Twitter, signing the petition, or making a video voicing your support, as many others (like Tom Hanks and Arianna Huffington) have already done.
