The Onion: America's Finest News Source

The Onion logoNews happens all the time. In fact, news might be happening even as you read this.

But, as we all know, the news that gets reported is all too often depressing, frustrating, or just plain boring.

Not so with The Onion, a heavily satirical newspaper and web publication that "reports" on the latest news, both real, heavily exaggerated, and completely made up. It is a mockery of all that is serious and a celebration of all that is dumb.

Sometimes you'll chuckle, sometimes you'll laugh until you cry (it is The Onion, after all; there should be at least a little crying involved), and sometimes you'll be so offended that you'll refuse to read it again for at least--at least--another 24 hours.

Just one look at the front page of the website will give you an indication of just how much you'll enjoy the site (parental guidance suggested):
