OT: Gymnast Shawn Johnson Put To Sleep
EDIT: Ha. totally missed the onion reference. Pop-up add was blocking it.
DON'T SCARE ME LIKE THAT
"Just one shot to the back of the head"
I actually googled this information to see if it was true (before I watched the video). Wikipedia didn't have anything on it, and if I've learned anything in life, it's that Wikipedia's word is the spoken truth. Thanks for raising my blood pressure on a Tuesday morning for nothing.
Eff'n hilarious, nice post.
Not Funny - maybe preface the title with "joke" next time.
You couldn't tell it was a joke?
I thought she might have sustained a head injury and was put into a coma - treatment which happens when you have head trauma with brain swelling. obviously, after the vid, I knew it was a spoof, but not until
And for that I get negbanged.
doesn't really happen to humans.
This was entirely wrong, but also entirely brilliant and hilarious....
...but I thought the reference to being "put to sleep" was a "dead giveaway" that it was a joke.
Tactical fax paus on my part!
Well, 'aight, check this out, dawg. First of all, you throwin' too many big words at me, and because I don't understand them, I'm gonna take 'em as disrespect. Watch your mouth and help me with the sale.
How did you incorporate wings into dudes hair? Win.
That would be depressing. She is made of hot.
She is hot but she is no Nastia Liukin!
Totally. She's WAY hotter than Nastia Liukin.
Totally Agree. I would do nasty things to Nastia Liukin. I would do stuff to Shawn too but I would get dirty with Nastia.
Either way gymnasts are sexy. I know cause dating one was a blessing from Jesus himself haha
Alicia Sacraboneme, I mean Sacramone, is the hottest of all.
Mmmm, those big dark eyes...the hurt Olympic performance...it's ok Alicia, it's ok...let me kiss and make it all better...
Where do we think we are...China?
"We never got to breed her."
So wrong yet so funny.
"We never got to breed her" may have been the best line of the whole thing, though "her hind quarters were so strong" had be cracking up, too.
Definitely in questionable taste . . . yet I laughed.
Is if they got her actual parents to do it.
I actually heard Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air talk to an Onion editor about examples of the stuff that they had to leave in staff meetings because it was too edgy. (Example: Headline referencing "the Quadragon" after 9-11-01.)
I wonder what boundaries are left, after this thing. I cringed... while I was laughing.
