If I Didn't Laugh, I'd Cry

This morning I took Stella for a walk on a different route than usual, and found a box with free copies of The Onion in it! It actually had some local entertainment listings. Apparently they've launched a DC edition. Yay! Now I don't have to hate my brother anymore for not reading every word of every edition of The Onion when he lived in Minneapolis, where apparently they've been handing out free copies of the thing for years.

And then this afternoon I happened to follow a link from Slate to the Onion site and I found this brilliant story from 2002:
"The United States will not stand idly by while people or insects who despise everything we stand for develop weapons of mass infection," Bush said. "The only way to fight a pestilence such as this is to attack it right where it breeds—in this case, the lands to the west of the Nile River."

Bush Sends Troops to West Nile

Read it and weep. Or laugh, it's up to you.

  • Shudder with me

    OK, so abandoned buildings, especially houses, are a fear of mine. For some reason I like scaring myself with the pictures people post on…

  • Wah!

    I phoned in a voice post last night, but it didn't show up right away so I thought I'd wait until morning. Now it's still not there! Is it lost…

  • I know it's wrong but

    I can't help wanting this shirt. I could do without the Hello Titties though.
