On Satire Bits: Vol. 43

How’s your week? So far, my week has delivered the unexpected. Nothing major, but a host of abnormalities. Then again, I deal with them and move on.

I really enjoyed writing yesterday’s post about the speck. Thanks to Robin for adding a wonderful video that contains many interesting facts. Elyse’s Stardust video was a good musical treat.

This post happens to be a milestone – #1,100. Many of you remember the party for 1,000 this past September, which was a lot of fun for me.

It’s time to step up to the celebratory buffet for a healthy scoop of midweek satire from The Onion. Any favorites?

Let’s add a twist. Given the information in the headlines and only that information, create your own original satire headline. In order to not spoil your fun, mine is at the end. Have a good rest of the week.
