Website of the Day: The Onion

The Onion is one of the few sites on the internet that consistently delivers laughs, witty stories and relevant political assertions hidden in dorky and outrageous videos (aside from gigglesugar of course). In case you haven't run across it before, the site uses the tagline "America's Finest Newsource" and has done for newspapers and online magazines what the "Daily Show with John Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" do for television news.

The site features faux news from all genres including politics, science, entertainment and of course, my favorite, technology news like the hilarious fake iPhone ad. It also keeps us up to date with items like the the parody news video about a global internet crash and a whole barrel of laughs on gigglesugar. My most recent laugh fest came from the site's fake story about Google launching 'The Google' for older adults." How does google for adults work? "All you have to do to turn the website on is put the little blinking line thing in the cyberspace window at the top of the screen, type ',' and press 'return'—although it will also recognize,, and 'THEGOOGLE' typed into a Word document." Har. Har.
