The fine folks at the Taiwanese animation company NextMedia Animation brought their special touch to the New York Times v. Wall Street Journal battle -- Rupert Murdoch is a shark swimming to New York (presumably from Australia), NYT publisher Pinch Sulzberger apparently fires people by sending them through a trap door and Murdoch has a magic wand that can turn people into entertainment, food and gossip writers. There's even a Jets v. Sharks dance-off between the two newspapers (Murdoch's team is, of course, the sharks).
