NASHVILLE, TN—A pop song is undergoing a controversial new banjo treatment to help it transition into a country song.
The tune was born biologically a pop song, including all the telltale signs of simplistic, repetitive melodies, inane lyrics, and complete lack of musical quality. But with a steady regimen of injections of banjos, supplemented by a slight twang in the signer's voice and a slide guitar, the song is now bravely living out its identity as a country single.
"It is time I lived out my identity as a country song, and injecting a light banjo riff is the clinical treatment I need to make that a reality," the song said in a statement Thursday. "I'm so thankful to my friends and family for supporting this transition and affirming who I am, who I was always born to be."
Actual country songs are protesting the song's inclusion on the country charts, saying it is not fair that they have to compete against songs that are not biologically country but have just bolted a banjo onto their clearly pop structure.
The song has said its preferred pronoun is now "y'all."

SAN FRANCISCO—A cashier working the closing shift at a small mom-and-pop store on Sutter St. was left shocked and bewildered when a customer tried to pay for her items.
Store security footage reveals the customer roamed the store calmly while looters plucked most shelves dry. She picked up a few trinkets before heading to the register.
"I wasn't really paying attention," said the cashier, Brian Risico. "We get lots of looters, but I don't think I've ever seen a paying customer. No one taught me how to use the register."
"Then this chick comes up," he continued. "She's– I don't know. Normal? She placed some products on the counter and asked for the damage. I thought she was going to hurt me, but it turned out she wanted to know how much money she should give me."
Risico stared blankly at the woman for a minute before panicking and fleeing in terror. The unnamed customer then placed a twenty on the counter and left. The twenty-dollar bill was promptly stolen.

U.S.—As part of a bold new marketing strategy to promote inclusivity and appeal to less than 1% of the population, Mars, Incorporated has introduced a new M&M character who identifies as a Skittle.
"I'm gonna be honest here. We basically are doing this because it's hip and makes us look cool," said Mars, Incorporated CEO Franklin Crunchy. "And that adds to the bottom line. I think we can make a decent fortune by comparing the hardship of real trans people to a wacky cartoon character."
"Trans people deserve to be represented by M&Ms," he continued. "Our Trans-Skittle character will help us break chocolate-covered barriers in your mouth and not in your hands."
The new character, named Quinn, is an M&M that wears an "S" because they haven't had letter reassignment surgery yet. On the inside, Quinn has the same chocolate taste because it isn't able to change anything but its outward appearance.
"We just want to let the trans community know that M&M supports you and wants your money!"...
