“Oakland Unseen” lampoons local news
There, the funnyman (who is a technical writer at Google by day) satirizes the local news, riffing on everything from so-called hipster crimes to the Chronicle’s shrinking book-review section. He recently came out with a print edition, available here, but you can always get your daily dose directly from his Tumblr site. Below, a few of our favorite hilarious headlines:
