Top Stories from the Onion

Here are some of my favorite stories from The Onion.
If you are not familiar with the publication, please check out the follow via Wikipedia:

"The Onion is an American digital media company and news satire organization. It runs an entertainment website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news. It also runs a non-satirical entertainment section known as The A.V. Club. Starting in 2007, the organization published satirical news audio and video online, as the "Onion News Network".[2] In 2014, the Onion News Network was folded back into the original brand as "the Onion Video."

The Onion '​s articles comment on current events, both real and fictional. It parodies traditional news websites with stories, editorials,op-ed pieces, and man-in-the-street interviews, using a traditional news website layout and an editorial voice modeled after that of theAssociated Press. Its humor often depends on presenting mundane, everyday events as newsworthy, surreal or alarming.

The Onion's parent company, Onion Inc., also runs an entertainment website called The A.V. Club that features interviews and reviews of various newly released media, as well as other weekly features. In 2013, Onion Inc. launched Onion Labs, an advertising agency.[3] Originally a print publication, The Onion launched its website in 1996.[4] It ceased publishing print editions in December 2013."
