the chinese have taken over the onion!

The latest edition of America's Finest News Source, The Onion, has been taken over by the Chinese. Basically, the idea is that the paper has been sold to China. And I've got to admit... it's friggin' brilliant.

I know what you're thinking -- I'm supposed to hate this. There has to be something in this pisses me off. I haven't gotten through all of it, but I've seen a lot, and to be honest, I can't stop laughing. They've actually pulled it off. (Thanks, Martin.)

With hilarious headlines like Nothing At All Happens To 28 Tibetan Protesters, Their Families, or Potato-Faced Youngster Lauded For Memorizing Primitive 26-Character Alphabet, or simply Yao Ming! ...it's all cracking me up.

You know, when I see so much bad comedy being passed off as satire, it's so refreshing to see The Onion do it right -- with wit and intelligence, and without being insulting (well, maybe just a little insulting, where it counts). Can't wait for the North Korea issue.
