The Onion Really Is America's Finest News Source

The Onion is so great at poking fun of everyone.  It's the kind of onion that makes me cry from laughing so hard.  Like in this article, "Area Man Passionate Defender of What He Imagines Constitution To Be".

My favorite quote from that post:

"Dad's great, but listening to all that talk radio has put some weird ideas into his head," said daughter Samantha, a freshman at Reed College in Portland, OR. "He believes the Constitution allows the government to torture people and ban gay marriage, yet he doesn't even know that it guarantees universal health care."

Reminds me of Dad and me when I was a teenager, shouting our inaccurate facts at each other, him calling me a pinko commie, me calling him a fascist pig.

Fortunately we've both mellowed with age so we rarely argue anymore.  It helps that we no longer live together.  It helps that we've both dabbled in psychiatric drugs.  It helps in my case, too, that I've actually now read the Constitution.

You can too, right here.
