The Onion rocks! I subscribe to the print version--it is absolutely the perfect read for those times in the...uh...loo. Might as well tell it like it is.

--Peace and good loo reading, BeeEss

The MS patent story... an oldie, but still a classic. I just wish there would be more updates by Herbert Kornfield (K-Dawg

'The Onion' is GREAT, absolutely hilarious.

When I went to Madison, WI, at the UW campus, I picked up a printed newspaper version of 'The Onion.' I actually haven't been to the website, because I didn't even know one existed until just a few days ago when my friend told me. Great stuff though. Makes for a hearty laugh.

"Five Or Six Dudes Jump Out Of Nowhere And Just Start Whaling On This One Guy"


Comedy, pure comedy. I used to just pick The Onion up off the street in New York.... or if I didn't, my roommates would always have one sitting in the bathroom, just waiting for a spare half hour or so.

Our Dumb Century is cool and yes I think it is the best of the books. I was taking a history course when I bought it.
The WWI head line and the Kennedy one.
Oh yeah! Man Walks on the Moon!
any fans of The Onion should pick up their books.
