On Another Layer

The Onion is a great satire site. Not publishing Opinions in the Shorts around the December holidays gave me the opportunity to collect headlines from The Onion. Enjoy the chuckle … which of the following is your favorite?

    • Elyse,
      Being in the minority is a good thing … after all, each amuses us in a different way. The fact that I posted it tells you that I liked it enough to make the list. Personally, I find this one amusing because I would be one saying that to a faction of Republicans today, Reagan would be a RINO. Thanks for stopping by.


    • Patti,
      Ah ha … another one for the butter. Is the preference linked to Julia Child? 😉 … Stephen Colbert is simply trying to educate people – and he has picked an interesting way to do it. Thanks for stopping by.


    • Cuttlefish,
      Welcome … for some reason I’m thinking this is your first time commenting. If a person knows how to take satire, it can be a joy. BTW, I try to include some headlines from The Onion on my Opinions in the Shorts (Friday post), and will be doing more posts on Wednesday regarding satirical headlines because they are fun. Hope you return and thanks for visiting.


Comment with respect.
