On Satire Bits: Vol. 76

Mid-week has arrived, so how’s it going? I’ve already tackled the leaves this week and figure to go another round this weekend.

Handbell rehearsal was interesting because our music binders were considerably thinner, but the upcoming holiday season always involves much preparation.

Good news is that a video of our handbell choir’s premier of the commissioned song is now available, so I hope to work it into a post next week. Plus, my mother-in-law strength keeps improving, so we’re hoping she returns home by week’s end.

It’s satire time from The Onion, and the combination challenge returns – so sharpen your wits to use the information below to develop your headline. Mine is at the end of the post. Otherwise, what’s your favorite?

Politician excited, proud to attend local event

Man takes free thing he doesn’t want

Total hunk sitting over by plant

Fog machine heightens dance at children’s recital

Local man would like fries with that

Picture at party comes out great

Stupid thing didn’t work

Woman at supermarket imagines entire narrative where bagger is happy with life

Area man perfectly content with role of another cog in the wheel

Naturalist retreat ends in a boner

My combo: Stupid politician excited, but boner didn’t work
