“Old Newsboys” Spoof Paper Hits The Streets

The Old News Boys are at it again. Volunteers woke up early this morning to hawk the “Lansing Spoof Journal”. The laughs serve an important purpose. Every year since its inception volunteers have hit the streets taking donations for the humor-filled paper.
It’s all put on by The Old News Boys Association of Greater Lansing. They hand out the paper for donations.
But there’s more to this paper than just laughs.
Old News Boys volunteer Derrick Quinney says, “We’re here for the 91st anniversary of the Old News Boys. The Old News Boys has been a long time tradition of raising money to provide, shoes boots and socks for kids in the Lansing area as well as a 25-mile radius.”
Mike Hanson is another Old News Boy volunteer. “Why do you wake up early and come out in the cold? Because it’s a really good cause and a good organization. I’ve got kids I want to leave an example for, and I gotta make sure that we take care of those that aren’t able to take care of themselves one way or another.”
You can hear the Old News Boys yelling “GET ‘EM WHILE THEY’RE HOT” at street corners all through the city.
The cost? Anything you can spare.
