I read 'God Among Bros' again the other night, and shed laughter tears.

Yeah, the Onion has been really strong recently.

My favorite articles are ones like this, http://www.theonion.com/content/news/time_traveler_everyone_in_the,
where there's a nice surprise waiting for you if you read the whole thing.

My favorite headline from a long time ago.  I lol'd when I saw it.

"My president is going to be one half Don West, one half the singer from Venom, thank you very much, good day sir!"

Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

I think this will always be my favorite. Came out a week or two after Mother Teresa died. 

Headline:  Mother Teresa Sent To Hell In Wacky Afterlife Mix-Up

Some of the story details:
Her arthritic limbs snapping like twigs as her frail, 4'11" frame was rent asunder by the claws of grotesque, multi-limbed demons, Mother Teresa reportedly screamed in indescribable agony as the superheated gases of Hell's unholy furnace blackened and charred her hair and face. According to a New York Times report, her skull has already been used as a drinking goblet by Satan, the Great Deceiver himself, and the esteemed nun's rape at the hands of insatiable, barbed-penis-wielding hellhounds in the near-future is considered "highly likely."

Brave, brave humor.

I can't find it on the site, but my favorite Onion headline ever is something like "Extreme Terrorist Nosegrabs Into Capitol Building."


also,

Hola amigos. I know it's been a long time since I rapped at ya,



Jim Anchower always makes me laugh.

Jim Anchower is the best.  And Jackie Harvey is awesome.  Jean Teasdale is unbelievably tragic but I laff at that too.

I work for The Onion, and I find it very, very funny that all the subscription magazines in the lobby are addressed to "Jim Anchower."
