Andy Borowitz has inside story on the baffling purchase of The Washington Post by Jeff Bezos:
SEATTLE (The Borowitz Report)—Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, told reporters today that his reported purchase of the Washington Post was a “gigantic mix-up,” explaining that he had clicked on the newspaper by mistake.
“I guess I was just kind of browsing through their website and not paying close attention to what I was doing,” he said. “No way did I intend to buy anything.”
He should be extra careful now. “You might also like Detroit, Fabrice Tourré, or the U.S. Congress. Look at what we’ve recently added to your wish list!”
