1,000,000th journalist slips the words "no doubt" into story about Gwen Stefani

Writer Rachel Dodes set a new journalistic landmark when she wrote these words in The Wall Street Journal: "There is no doubt Gwen Stefani has come out a winner in the fashion world..."

After the issue went to press, Tom Doheni of the Pulitzer Committee held a press conference where he presented Ms. Dodes with a gold Putlizer pen and a pair of Harujuku Lovers shoes. At the press conference, he read this proclamation, "In journalism school, we all learn of the necessity to cleverly play off of pop culture references, especially in an article subject's past. So while our industry might currently be facing difficulties thanks to the inability of Generation X to pay attention to an article that is more than 140 characters long, we can still take pride that we have held true to our ability to write a solid pun."

In accepting her award, Ms. Dodes quoted Isaac Newtown, "'If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.' I would particularly like to thank John Hudgens, authors of "no doubt" puns no. 12,893, 368,983, and 993,934 and Macy Charlotte, who has written a record 1,290 "no doubt" puns.
