This week The Onion re-ran the “Hammurderer” article – one of the most hilarious articles they’ve written. It reminds me I meant to come up with a list of my favorite Onion articles of all time. Here’s a first shot at such a list (in random order):
- The Hammurderer character dropped from McDonald’s advertising
- I’m Like a Chocoholic, but for Booze
- Point Counterpoint: Technology
- Real-Time TV
- All these homosexuals…
There are some other classics but I can’t find them all… I guess they don’t keep them all archived online. Damn.
The first Onion articles I ever saw were
Eight Pound Man Removed From Woman’s Vagina: http://www.theonion.com/onion3623/eight_pound_man.html
Study Reveals: Babies are stupid: http://www.theonion.com/onion3119/stupidbabies.html
The Hammurderer is quickly becoming regarded as the worst-received advertising mascot since Kool-Aid’s 1989 discontinuation of “The Grapist,” a huge purple monster who sodomizes thirsty children.
