Made for each other: Good Morning America and…The Onion.

“NEW YORK—Saying they were bored and there was nothing fun to do in the ABC studios, the spunky crew of Good Morning America announced ‘really big plans’ Thursday to write and broadcast their very own television news show all by themselves,” the paper announces.

“The cute little program, which will be produced without any help from any grown-ups, and which will feature important news, interviews with funny people, and also weather, will air Friday at 7 a.m.”

It continues. Happy Friday, everyone.
