    This was brought up in another thread and I thought I'd present this newspaper here in the Club House. This newspaper originates here in Chicago and it is one heck of a great newspaper. The Onion is absolutely based on satire and is great fun to read. Here's a link to it's home page. It's a very fun read. Enjoy!

    The Onion must be the US equivalent of 'The Chaser' over here. They have achieved notoriety in Aust to the point where during Dick Cheney's visit to Australia in 2007, members of The Chaser team were included on the official list of terrorists, anarchists, and protesters deemed to pose a threat to the US Vice-President :D

    They just about get away with murder!

    No, you're right. I think the Onion is a very funny and interesting newspaper.

    But that all aside........


    You do have class, Lon.
