Blog jokes move into mainstream newspapering…..

An interesting update: When I received the email from my friend Paul containing the photoshop-doctored creation of Baghdad Bob in a Red Wings shirt (below) holding a press conference outside if Joe Louis Arena I nearly fell out of my office window from laughing so hard. But that’s not what this post is about.

Interestingly enough, the Detroit Free Press, one of the two major Detroit dailies I manage production for also picked up the item from http://www.fark.com and published it inside of today’s sports section.

It’s worth noting simply because 1) They published such an obviously doctored item, 2) …that came from the Blogosphere….and 3) credited it as such. Well, they just said a joke floating around on the internet, but that’ll change, too.
