Haven't read it, but one thing. Should it be UnNews: Mary-Jane caught with pot!? I.e. with an "a" in caught. If I'm bonkers, ignore me. If I'm right, I don't know how you change the title. Um. Yeah. That's all I have to say. Nameable mumble? (UnScr:PWotM) 10:30, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

No there is a good reason for having the title that way... when refering to marijuana as pot you don't quite say i want some a pot :P lol, however why this works is because news titles can be shortened in this way so that pot here still refers to the other type of pot too, so technically it could refer to any kind here, its a simple play on the word, i should however change the first line of the article to (a) pot. Mary-Jane is the name given by subtle songwriters to marijuana so if you read the article youll see what i mean (I hope) Sir ACROLO KUNFPWAOTMFA •(SPAM) 11:09, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Ok. I just thought it was typo - as in "cought" or "caught". I am now sufficiently confused to not know anything. Nameable mumble? (UnScr:PWotM) 11:58, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Humour: 6 A couple of the puns made me smirk, but it was nothing of the laugh-out-loud variety. The Spongebob joke, for example, was completely superfluous, in my opinion.
Concept: 7 Original enough, but revolves around a rather silly pun at it's core. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though.
Prose and formatting: 4.5 The grammatical structure is okay, but the punctuation and capitalization problems are recurrent throughout the article. Also, there is a definite typo in the article title; it should read "Mary-Jane caught with Pot," not "Mary-Jane cought with Pot."
Images: 5 The first image makes a lot of sense, and actually made me smile. The second image does not need to be there at all; most readers will know what a pot looks like.
Miscellaneous: 6 See below.
Final Score: 28.5 Perhaps some of the humor is lost on me because I'm not a stoner. Overall, this article has some potential, but don't go for the cheap pun laughs; "satire" is the name of the game on this site.
