Året der gak 2020 er en god nyhed til alle, der elsker skarp satire og gode grin.De to ATS-redaktører Ole Rasmussen og Gorm Vølver har hvert år siden 1993 udgivet deres egen populære årbog, men nu har de allieret sig med satiretegneren Roald Als og ændret formatet, så tegneren får plads til sine gale streger.I denne nye bog får man altså ikke bare alle de bedste tekster fra Politikens satirespalte ATS (At Tænke Sig), men også årets sjoveste tegninger af Roald Als.Der bliver taget fat på årets mest markante begivenheder, og det er ikke kedeligt. Selv den for alle alvorlige coronaepidemi får et humoristisk tvist, når f.eks. danskernes hamstring af toiletpapir kommer under kærlig behandling med gode råd til, hvad man ellers kan tørre sig i. Forfatterne tager også fat på andre katastrofer. For eksempel Donald Trump, selv om han er svær at gøre til grin, fordi han klarer det så fremragende selv.Men det er først og fremmest begivenheder og personer fra den hjemlige andedam, der er udsat for satire i Året der gak 2020, hvor man blandt andet kan læse om nedsmeltningen hos de alternaive og deres tidligere leder Uﬀe Heltvæk. For ikke at tale om partiets nye ledelse, ’Fock og Gejl’, der ifølge ATS lyder som titlen på en tysk pornofilm fra 70’erne. Josephine Fock forklarer i øvrigt til ATS, at hun under coronakrisen altid iførte sig handsker, før hun begyndte at ruske partimedlemmerne.
