Overrated, yes... But Still a Damn Fine Line in
without saying, but The Onion is nothing special
compared to other top-tier satire outlets like,
say, Glossy News or the National Report.
like so many things that go without saying, it
really does have to be said! The Onion is
certainly a top-tier satire outlet, however
defined, but its not like their work is
noticeably better than that of their peers and
Bitter? No, of
course, I am am not biased at all :P
Hell, in all
seriousness (or rather, in all po-facedness; the
terms are hardly synonymous), its not like
I disdained to mention the National Report; which
latter I have never written for! So Im
clearly at least as fair and impartial as the Fox/MSNBC
apologetical-industrial complex ;) Still, credit
where credits due. I found some links
discussing times where The Onion actually got it
I havent fact-checked these,
but then again, its satire
say Im not a purely disinterested writer,
aye? On the other hand, if you are a member of
the disinterested is LITERALLY the same
thing as uninterested, DUDESICKLE!!! school
of semantic atrocities, please stop reading now!
Uh, you might
want to take my advice in future.
arncha? Hm. Theres no curing some folks.
however, us folks who write satire are better
than that. Hell, even those folks at The Onion
are as well! Cant say Im petty, mean-spirited
or partisanly dismissive, can ya? Maybe uninterested
in the opinions of the disinterest
lobby, at a push.
Hey, I bet you
guys never have problems. You
probably claim you have issues, do you?
There are two
kinds of people in life: issue-havers and problem-havers.
You cant be both. Think about it.
semantic atrocity. Better stop here. I mean theres
just no bottom, is there? :P
