What makes it satire? I don't know. Maybe satire holds up a distorting mirror to reality, but don't seek any deep meaning in my words.
The article was published just after Lou's death on a New Zealand satirical site which features such gems as "Jetstar passenger furious after missing flight that left on time" and even "New X Factor judges somehow even less famous than previous X Factor judges", so maybe it is satire by context.
But look at this site now - http://www.evilyoshida.com/thread-3739.html
Was the original article taken as literal truth, or is this reprint super-saturated satire? I've not read it all. There are seven pages and it soon got boring.
Which guy exists? Thomas Vandenberghe? There are several by that name, so, yeah, he exists.
