  • The Onion appreciation thread.

    Well, I think it is safe to say this is the world's greatest website. The news stories are hilarious. Talk about how awesome it is, share your favourite articles, whatever.

    http://www.theonion.com/content/node/48676

    http://www.theonion.com/content/node/33426

    The second one is the funniest thing I've ever read in my life.

    Oh, and I just thought I'd share that I bought an Onion book about the past 100 years. Was funny. All the World War 2 articles went like this.

    WAR
    Hitler invades*insert all of Europe*
    French Surrender

    Japan attacks imperial US non-state
    French Surrender

    Nagasaki bombed "just for the hell of it"
    "2nd atomic bomb would have just sat around, anyway" say generals
    French Surrender.

    And since some of their articles get political/religious, let's just admire the articles themselves, and not actually delve into the issues they touch on.

      My favorite sports related article:
      http://www.theonion.com/content/node/50033

      My actual favorite article:
      http://www.theonion.com/content/news...president_of_9

      The second one deals with politics but it shouldn't really spin off into anything. The Onion overall is my favorite site and so much to the point that I own the day by day calendar.

        "In keeping with the college football tradition, Notre Dame and LSU will recieve different gifts of equivalent value: Each Notre Dame player will receive a 2007 Saturn Sky roadster, a PlayStation 3, and a video iPod; the LSU team will receive an autographed football signed by the entire 2006 Notre Dame squad."

          In San Francisco, The Onion teamed with the AV Club to post a weekly periodical. This means that every week I can walk to the coffee shop and pick up a printed version of The Onion.

          It's kickass.

                That's amazing. I was just thinking while I was walking earlier today that they need to make an Onion weekly and have subscriptions and stuff. I'd buy.

                  I hope everybody knows where the Onion started...(University of Wisconsin-Madison)

                  Anyway, I love reading the quotes from normal people that they include. My favorite was in the edition all about the War in Iraq because it had recently passed WWII for length or something along those lines and the quote read, "No matter how long the War in Iraq lasts, it will ultimately have the same result as WWII...the complete and udder destruction of the Japanese."

                    I was expecting Bill Raferty. Boo.
                    The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                    “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                            Uh, they do offer subscriptions. It's like $50/year.

                            They are now based in NYC, but you should be able to pick them up free in most cities.

                            And in response to another post, they've always had (for the last 10 years at least) the AV Club as part of the Onion
