Articles on the “news” site The Onion usually inspire me to cringe, roll my eyes, shake my head in bemusement, gasp and cover my mouth with my hand in shock, or rotflmao. Sometimes all of that at one go, which must be a sight.
And sometimes, The Onion calls it right on the money. Twisting and mocking facts, they are capable of mercilessly aiming a light of razor-sharp clarity onto ourselves and our culture. It can pretty much bring tears to your eyes.
Especially when viewed from the future. Ouch.
