New York Post Acting Wack (Updated)S

Volunteers handing out today's Fake New York Post outside of the Post's headquarters at the News Corp building "were detained by police and their papers were confiscated," according to witnesses. Lame, New York Post. Super lame. UPDATE: NYP statement below.

The Post's PR firm, Rubenstein, sent us this dynamic statement:

Witless Spoof in Flawless Format

It's no surprise that they tried to spoof the New York Post; they figured this time they'd choose a paper people actually love to read. But this is a limp effort. It has none of the wit and insight New Yorkers expect from their favorite paper. The Post will not be hiring any of their headline writers.
