SALT LAKE CITY – The Salt Lake Tribune says a new website is sort of like The Onion of Provo.

Except at The Alternate Universe — the satirical website run by students at Brigham Young University — no casserole joke is off-limits, lists of classes “guaranteed to get you married” are encouraged, and everything gets better with more essential oils.

“Provo — and Utah, too, for that matter — they’re just so weird,” teased Stephen Fortuna, the site’s founder. “Actually, I don’t know if weird really captures it. It has its own culture, which gives us a lot of material to play with.”
