    Steven Kowalski, throwing down the satire at The Hard Times:


    Lazzara, sitting on his throne high atop his Sunday Fortress, looked out upon a crippled, unassuming week. “People think I’m going to take back Monday first,” Lazzara said to his legion of fans, “But no! We’re taking back Tuesday from the people that took it from us. Once we take back Tuesday, we can attack the rest of the week from both ends.”

    Alright so I started this article like "Alright this is pretty good, props to the writer"

    and then I got to the Thursday part and lost it.

    Not my favourite actual article, but the concept is brilliant.

    I think this is stupid. Adam clarified his comments on instagram and she also took her article down. Not hard to believe someone from Billboard took some comments out of context.

    Are you missing the satire or am I missing some deeper meta joke? I can't even tell anymore, haha.

    That Thursday part was hilarious. I saw on Twitter he has clarified what took place. Seems like Billboard needed some attention.

    What situation? It's just a Hard Times article. Is there more to this one??

    No, just this and the whole billboard thing being related.

    Yeah turns out it was more something taken out of context which sucks. But even with his explanation he still seems overly serious with it about it "becoming a parody".

    Oh, thanks! I wasn't aware of that situation, but I just googled it. Sounds awkward for all.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Hard Times is awesome, but there are all the best moments in the comments on their fb page when people don't get the fact it's satire hah ;D

    It's hard to believe that it's 2016 and I still sometimes see people who doesn't understand The Onion either.
