On Another Layer

Regulars here know that I include headlines of the week from The Onion on Friday’s Opinions in the Shorts. Fortunately for me, not too long ago I started saving some Onion headlines that I liked, but didn’t use on Friday.

The last time I did this, I used “Peel” in the title and dear ol’ John got excited with anticipation of a post about Emma Peel. Since I inserted a video feature his beloved babe into a comment, John (since I’m not sure you saw it or want to see it again), you can click here.

Meanwhile, below are 10 headlines from The Onion. Any favorites?

  1. Hey, I thought you had to work!!!

    I like this one, although I got in trouble when I wrote about it: Climate Change Causes Smaller Animals. I may just have to see w hat the Onion had on it!


    • Elyse,
      I am working … and posts will be impacted. However, work more affects commenting in a timely manner and visiting other sites. So I simply do what I can, when I can. As for me, I like the Oprah headline. Thanks for visiting.


  2. “Save money by vacationing in your mind”, huh? Never seen “Total Recall”, I’m guessing! 😉
    I did see the Emma Peel video last time, but thanks for thinking of me!


    • John,
      You are correct about me never seeing Total Recall. You are quote the treasure of links to sci fi movies. BTW – I’m glad I helped you have a reason to revisit Ms Peel. Thanks for commenting.


  3. Hi,
    I confess I don’t know much about “The Onion” but I will give you my thoughts of some of the Headlines.

    “Climate Change Causes Smaller Animals”
    Hmm a subject best I stay away from, unless you want a rant 🙂 They are going to hit OZ with a carbon tax in July next year.

    “Worried Perfectionist Reassured by Lazy Slob”
    Now that sound interesting, and it sounds like it maybe a bit funny, I would most likely click onto that one.

    “Save Money by Taking a Vacation Entirely in Your Mind’
    I do this all the time, but I must say it is not as good as the real thing. 🙂

    Some very interesting headings, I may have to start reading The onion. 😀


    • Mags,
      Thanks for sharing your favs … here’s mine: Oprah Invites Hundreds of Lucky Fans to be Buried with Her in Massive Tomb. BTW … The Onion is a great satire site for people with a warped sense of humor. Thanks for visiting.


    • Kay,
      Whew … glad vacationing in your mind doesn’t make you less interested, otherwise, one would go because they are satisfied and it’s much cheaper! … My fav is “Oprah Invites Hundreds of Lucky Fans to be Buried with Her in Massive Tomb”. Thanks for commenting.


  4. By far my favorite is:

    Oprah Invites Hundreds of Lucky Fans to be Buried with Her in Massive Tomb

    People follow her like lemmings. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if they decided to walk like an Egyptian and follow her into death. 😉
