    If you do realize this is satire, it doesn't belong in S&T.

    If you don't realize it's satire, you've got bigger problems. :uhoh:

    For anyone who doesn't know...

    The Onion is an American news satire organization. It features satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news as well as an entertainment newspaper and website known as The A.V. Club. It claims a national print circulation of 690,000 and says 61 percent of its web site readers are between 18 and 44 years old.[2] Since 2007, the organization has been publishing satirical news audios and videos online, as the "Onion News Network".[4]

    The Onion's articles comment on current events, both real and imagined. It parodies traditional newspaper features, such as editorials, man-on-the-street interviews, and stock quotes, as well as traditional newspaper layout and AP-style editorial voice. Much of its humor depends on presenting everyday events as newsworthy items, and by playing on commonly used phrases, as in the headline, "Drugs Win Drug War."

    And no, this has no place in S&T, though someone else saw it before I did and closed it.
