Satirical Newspaper No Longer Funny Even To Itself

Did we learn nothing from Don Imus?

For Satire to be funny, it must a) Be true and b) Pit the weak against the strong.

The Onion making fun of This American Life is like Rush Limbaugh calling Sean Hannity a right-wing nut job. The Onion, if it is anything, is the very apotheosis of upper middle class college kids cracking wise to their buddies.

Chalk this one up to professional jealousy. TAL's on Showtime, what does the Onion have? A podcast?

Area man realizes previously funny thing just stupid, sad.
