If you haven't checked out this week's edition of the Onion, getcher ass over there ASAP. Funny funny stuff.

Like this article.

Or this one.

Or this historical front page.

"Jackie Robinson lynched for stealing second" ... so funny and so sad at the same time.

I've always thought that the "What Do You Think?" page on the Onion was probably the funniest page on the internet.

I was using a quote from the WDYT page in my .sig for most of the past week, until I (compusively) changed it. (I must've had fifty avatars/signatures/bios since I registered on this board.)

"I know they say we get the government we deserve, but I don't remember knife-raping any retarded nuns."

I love the 'Ray Charles signs Def Leppard album' spot.

The Onion has always ruled.

Another fine product from the historically fine journalism program of the University of Wisconsin.

But didn't they move some of their offices from Madison to New York? HEEL TURN!

Hey, they must have followed me when I moved from Madison to New York.

Seriously, as some one who's been reading since 93 (I even worked downstairs from them for a while, and played on the same softball team), I can honestly tell you they are funnier now than they've ever been. They also stopped recycling old stuff, which they did every once in while a few years ago.

The only thing that's slipped off a bit is "Justify Your Existence." Pre-web, the artists would totally be taken by surprise by the "why should anyone buy your record" question, and much funny shit would result. Now, with it being done by e-mail, and everyone knowing the question, it's totally lame. They should drop that column.

I totally miss "Drunk of the Week". There went my 15 words of fame. Of course, the Onion officially discouraged the disgusting practice of consuming alcohol.
