And just in case: you do realise it's fiction,
don't you. ;)
Where does it say that? The site passes itself off as a "news source",
so I don't think it was unreasonable of me to think it was real.
Err . . . The Onion is satire. It doesn't seriously purport to be a
"news source" in the normal sense. Its stories are intended to be taken
as satirical treatments of the news, and as far as I'm aware none of its
stories have ever been true.
'Course, it's not the first time it's been mistaken for the real thing -
there was the famous Harry Potter flap...
