A Palestinian village has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and Israel is throwing open its doors to refugees—at least, according to a fake version of The New York Times being distributed across New York City today. The prank copy of the revered "Gray Lady" also says Democratic presidential candidate "Hilarity Clifton" plans to quit the presidential race and instead head up a women’s nonprofit based in Ramallah. The edition even has fake ads. It’s not yet clear who is behind the prank. The group The Yes Men pulled off a similar prank in 2008.
