There was a lot to laugh about in Thursday's spoof edition of the Lansing State Journal. 

The Old Lansing Newsboys hit the streets of Lansing with their bright orange bags, selling the funny papers.

It's all for a good cause.

All sales from the "Lansing Spoof Journal" go to buy shoes and boots for local school children in need.

This year, the Newsboys are hoping to raise the most money ever, $165,000, and help even more children. Last year, 7,000 children were helped by the Newsboys.

It's been the mission of the old Newsboys for more than 90 years. The newsboys were decked out in their bright orange newspaper bags and jugs.
