Onion Mgo.licio.us Article

Alright, I have to admit that this one got me a bit until I noticed that it was linking to the Onion.

Pretty funny article, though, after my initial heart attack. (Yes, I know the initial fear was irrational, but it happened.)

I also like the picture they chose in the diag with the Natural Science Building and the big flag; you don't see images from that angle too often.

To me, the Onion has really been on a good run recently...

Anyone have favorites to share?

I recently listened to an episode of This American Life with a segment on the writer's room at the Onion. They go through hundreds of ideas each Monday and Tuesday before deciding on the 16 they will use in that week's paper. It was interesting listening to their process of deciding what is funny, and the criteria for making it in the paper
