In case you haven’t heard, there’s a big basketball game at the RBC Center tonight. And, as is tradition, the students who run Technician today published their annual spoof of UNC-Chapel Hill’s student newspaper. This morning’s edition of The Daily Tar Hell caught up with former UNC star “Tiger Hansbobo,” editorialized on tuition increases and reported on a UNC player who just hasn’t been the same since the Presbyterian game.
The spoofs started in the 1950s as an April Fools’ edition that poked fun at NC State issues and people. We wrote about the Technician spoofs in our Fall 2007 issue and collected tidbits of some of the best from those spoofs. We also published a Web feature that has the full text of a handful of stories from 50 years of fake news.
