Take heart you loverly bunch of nuts. McLuhan posited that the "medium is the message." If pressed, the quarter-wits at The Onion would fawningly defer to his opinion and give MO the credit you merit. Diaper-wearing, anti-intellectuals that they are.

Oh behave, they only mentioned your name in passing, grasp-at-straws-boy. What the hell is "the onion" anyway some lefty college boy clap-trap? If it was something like THE TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE you could say you'd arrived. Put out the cee-gars and get back to work.

If you hate "The Onion", you'll REALLY hate "Opinion Journal's - Best of the Web" daily feature. A running joke is "Life Imitates the Onion". Opinion Journal is the online companion to the Wall St. Journal. Read at your own risk. If annoyed, I'm delighted.

Careful Vinnie -- lusting after Sister Theresa is probably a venal sin! How many Our Fathers and Hail Marys?

Default The cee-gars stay lit!

You wear your ignorance like a giant scarlet "I" across your chest! The Onion is an icon of the internet. Occupying the same satirical pantheon as SNL and Mad Magazine. Get thee some edumacation, fooooh!

Ahh, the ONION, begun some I don't know how many years ago by some kids at the University of Wisconsin who thought it'd be funny to make fun of everyone and everything. I've been reading it since I was in high school, but back then I think it was still just in Madison, and maybe Milwaukee. One of my first years in college everyone and their moms had the "BEER, IT KICKS ASS!!!" article posted on their door. Anyway it wasn't that long ago that they moved to New York and became a nationwide publication. Pretty amazing success story really.
