Why I Still Love the Onion

I about shit myself laughing over this one, and I have no idea why.

The joke about the Onion is always that all you need to read is the headline, but for things like this, it’s the commitment to the entire article that makes it worth your while.


  1. So, basically, you’re saying yer an overweight 37-year old woman who’s reading this blog off of a desktop PC that’s covered in tweety-bird stickers, with a motivational poster behind you in your cubicle of a kitty dangling from a tree limb over the caption “Hang In There!”

  2. Right?

    It’s the commitment to the joke that works, and the piling on of the puns, not a single one of which is in a vacuum but for some reason in aggregate and the sheer piling on of them that got me.

  3. Whatever you say, Susan. And for f#ck’s sake, please MAKE A NEW POT when you kill the last of the coffee in the break room, OK? It’s not difficult.
