APWith such useful advice as “Avoid using “gadzooks,” lest your monocle pop out and land in your jar of mustache wax,” The Fake AP Style Book Tweeters Mark Hale and Ken Lowery are literally re-writing the rules of journalism.

The AP Style Book has long been the bane of the average journalist’s existence, but Hale and Lowery’s take is pleasure-reading at its funniest. To date, the guys have tweeted 400 times and acquired over 55,000 dedicated followers. The creators of the Fake AP Style Book have even landed a literary agent, which means a real Fake AP Style Book is coming soon to a bookstore near you.
