I've never understood the Onion's reputation. It's sublime at it's best, but it's mostly a bit meh.
A bit harsh, but there's an awful lot of OK stuff with a work of pure genius maybe once a month.
While we're on topic, look up "When BP spills coffee" on YouTube.

My all time favorite, I now attach it to my Coverletter with my CV.
"There are 350,000 jobs waiting in Detroit, if they'd only say "Yes" when asked if they play golf, we could fill those jobs right away."
NB: the naming of a vegetable is cue for Green Investment Bank's ads. Something to write to the O-Nion about?
Good spot Dummy. If someone could just sift through the mediocre and post the excellent Onion FPs here that would be good. I trust we aren't too precious about that.
