David Barry, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and columnist summarizes 2013 using his humorous wit in an article published by The Washington Post with illustrations by Dale Stephanos.   From the trends of 2013 such as eating kale, to using hashtags to news such as Toronto’s mayor smoking crack – Barry cracks us up with his commentary and non-factual additions, for example:

Also he played “a small role” in the JFK assassination.

In Rome, Pope Schwartz introduces the Vatican’s first-ever Mah-Jongg Night. Elsewhere abroad, U.N. observers express concern when Syria receives a large shipment of crates from North Korea marked “AQUARIUM SUPPLIES. OR FRUIT. DEFINITELY NOT CHEMICAL WEAPONS.”
