On Satirical News Bits: Vol. 7

The first two days are in the book, thus Wednesday is the day that turns the corner while pointing to the weekend. As for me, I’m back to taking care of the around-the-house chores and having dinner ready when my wife arrives home. Tuesday night was this tasty version of chicken cacciatore from Food & Wine. Well, I did a bit of my on improv on the recipe.

Meanwhile, and for your amusement, here’s some past satire from The Onion for you to enjoy. Which is your favorite?

  1. Going to go with the Homeland Security Cologne, since it made me laugh first.
    Though the NASA one made me think of Richard Dreyfus in Moon Over Parador.
    Have a great rest of the week, Frank!

  2. I’m going for this one: Study Finds Every Style of Parenting Produces Disturbed Miserable Adult”

    Because after all, aren’t we all disturbed miserable adults?

  3. Okay.. why did I bust out laughing and kept laughing at this line “Grandma Updates to Cordless Landline”. LOL. I can totally see this being huge with someone who thought cordless phones were evil LOL

  4. Hi,
    I would definitely have to say:
    “Donut Shop Gets Weird after 11 am”
    I want to know what exactly happens after 11am, and what do they mean by weird. I am intrigued. :D

    • Les,
      Great point about technology. Let’s face it … tell someone to keep their latest I-Phone so they can use it (in time) as a prop defining archaic. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Wow, that’s a group of Onion headlines I can sink my teeth into! They’re all good, but I’ll go with “Beach Reports All Good Shells Taken.”

  6. Loved this one:

    Grandma Updates to Cordless Landline

    Probably because we recently updated to cordless landline phones. (And yes, I am a grandma.) LOL! I prefer having a landline even though we do have cell phones as well. It works during power outages (like we had yesterday) and cell phone coverage out here in the country is rather spotty at best.

Comment with respect.
