Ace and Iowahawk make big funny with ‘Borowitz Comedy Skool’

http://twitter.com/#!/AceofSpadesHQ/status/307271978937618432

New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz found himself on the receiving end of the classic “Ace of Spades treatment” today, as Ace and partner-in-crime Iowahawk welcomed their followers to attend #borowitzcomedyskool. Today’s lesson was how to re-create the formula behind Borowitz’s attempts at left-wing comedy: mention a Republican, link that person to pop culture in an absurd way, and maybe accuse him of being a horrible person in the process. Got it?

Andy Levy kicked things off by mocking Borowitz’s post about the Pope.

The worst part of any Borowitz Report column at “The New Yorker” is the “Get the Borowitz Report delivered to your inbox” threat at the end
