Helping America procrastinate since 1636

Why Write For HSP?

 The Presidential election cycle inevitably provides a deluge of fresh material for satire, as evidenced by these fine posters we found circulating around the interwebs.

However, after the election is over, we'll need more than hope to come up with novel ways to responsibly make fun of the new black president. As satirists, we've had it so easy these past eight years, and HSP will need bold, outside-the-box thinkers to come to grips with the challenges of American political satire in a world where the president can both speak in complete sentences and avoid perpetual diplomatic embarrassment.

Although the words of political figures deserve far less scrutiny than the mainstream media would have it, at HSP, we consider it our sacred duty to critically assess how well politician's words match up with their actions. Serving as the vanguard against political hypocrisy is indeed a thankless job, much like spending years cleaning subterranean nuclear reactors and being promptly shot upon retirement.

As such, we urge you to submit to HSP in the Spring, at a time when we will all finally live in a brave new world where our old jokes will be as obsolete as our old president.
