Internet Humor - Satire and response
« on: July 12, 2006, 02:14:49 PM »
I don't know if people have seen this, but a "pro-life" blogger has been making a general fool of himself on his blog, citing an article from the Onion and reacting to it.  It's sad, but fairly amusing.

and even moreso that he still doesn't seem to realize that the author doesn't exist.  He's pretty thick-headed.  Did you look at the rest of his crazy blog?

Not sure if this link actually works or would still work. Did anyone catch the special edition today of the NY Times? (July 4, 2009)


I was wondering if it was the work of The Onion.
Brilliant artwork. I especially liked the many 'ads'.

Both and the right and the left has it's own brand of idiocy.

Here's an example on the left:

I don't think  most people  can tell the difference  between the NY Times, the Onion or  what's said  on Jon Stewart and Colbert. It's all part of the same fringe.
