Fanfare for the Onion

Even though I pick one up every week I still get the annual compilations since they can preserve the timely and timeless comedy of America's Finest News Source.

Essays of Hilarious Insanity!

Once again, Editors Carol Kolb and Robert Siegel produce a hilarious collection of "newsworthy" crap. Volume 15 is no less funny than the previous volumes and it is the essence of clever, yet mind boggling nonsense that makes a great gift for the bored or the obsessive reader. There is no end to the hundreds and hundreds of amazing stories and that can be a blessing or a curse to read. If you enjoy having a 264 page book of completely sacrilegious and hilarious news articles, this is your baby! Collect them all and then check yourself into the nearest sanitarium!

Keeps you laughing for hours... great gift

If you like the humor of the National Lampoon or Saturday Night Live you will love this book. I laughed out loud at several pages. For any humor book there are some duds but they are few and far between with this excellent book. This is the type of book you will want to read aloud to friends. Some poor taste and not PC which is what makes it great. Enjoy!

Another great compilation

The Onion has been on my favorites list for many years. Who else is able to come out with a heaping helping of hilarity every week and stay as consistently original, literate, and sophisticated as these folks? Not many. For those of you expecting low-brow spoofs, you might be surprised, but I think that ultimately, you will enjoy it. The Onion is similar to a print version of The Daily Show, for all of you fans out there. There are contributing columnists (especially hilarious is a certain accountant gangsta') and parodies of current events, politics, celebrities, and culture. The principal difference is, perhaps, the flat-out invention of news stories to achieve this end, while Jon Stewart prefers to mock the newsmakers. Both approaches work, and if you like one you'll probably like the other. This anthology contains an entire year of Onion hilarity (for about 15 bucks--what a deal). Samples of the Onion's headlines: Cheney enters Presidential race himself (but he's still on the ticket with Bush), Kerry selects 1968 version of self as running mate, McDonalds to remove the "Hammurderer" from its promotional material (the "Grapist" is also going to have to go), etc. I could tell you more, but I think my point is made. Get the book...please.
