Schuster, MT - Fishmongers from New Hampshire to Florida are mourning the deaths of newspapers across the country. As the price of an ever-decreasing supply of newspapers goes up, fishwrap has gotten harder and harder to come by for fishermen.

"I can't wrap my fish with reuters.web or," says fisherman Paul Swallows.

Fishmongers have had to come up with new ways to wrap their daily catch.

"Luckily, I still get plenty of junk mail, so I've been wrapping my fish with that," says one.

Another fisherman says he's been printing up FoxNews articles and wrapping his fish with that, though the dead fish don't seem to like it very much.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
