It's just the kind of absurd, biting wit we've come to expect from The Onion. You guys are familiar with The Onion, right? It's that fake news outlet that runs hilarious news reports that are so irresponsible, so heavy-handed and so devoid of facts that they couldn't possibly be broadcast by an actual news organization. Can you imagine if something like this had been aired on a major news channel instead of a jokey-joke goof show?
CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW TERRIBLE THAT WOULD BE?
