I love The Onion
Here's a list of my favorite articles from the best newspaper in the country, The Onion.
Raving lunatic obviously took some advanced physics
Congress adds 'All your base are belong to us' amendment
to Bankruptcy bill (You'll need to know about this to
get the joke).
concludes: Science is Hard! (A great "radio program" clip!)
Kennedy slain by CIA, Mafia, Castro, LBJ, Teamsters,
Freemasons; President shot 129 times from 43 different angles
Bush finds error in FermiLab calculations
successfully split the bill
Bush: "Our national nightmare of peace and prosperity is
finally over" (note the date when it was written)
Random and amusing flash videos and clips
I love you, egg! (It's the egg song - an adorably catchy music video about eggs
made by a Korean design group, www.iloveegg.com).
Showdown of ultimate destiny (A music
video featuring superheros and 80s pop-culture characters -- an incredibly catchy tune!)
ALL YOUR BASE ARE
BELONG TO US (An awesome music video based
off of a poor Japanese-to-English translation of an older video game. It opens with clips from the game, and
then craziness follows. A big hit on college campuses in 2001).
End of ze World (A
hilarious explanation of how the
world is going to end).
A Peter Griffin Christmas (It's that dude from Family
Guy -- holy crap, look who's coming!)
A Series of Tubes (Clip from the Daily Show with Jon
Stewart -- HILARIOUS and depressing at the same time. I never fully realized just how moronic some people are
Numa numa Dance (Cute & entertaining)
sings about Bilbo Baggins (Scary! Leonard Nimoy singing, and disturbing 70s clothing in
David Hasselhoff Music
Video (Wrong, so wrong! The man is a senior citizen and picking up teenagers, and worse yet,
he makes a music video of it! So wonderfully bad!)
More singing David
Hasselhoff (That big-ass Alaskan fur coat is so terrible! He's clearly hooked on something
other than a feeling. Extremely high cheese content here)
worst music video ever (So bad! Those outfits are painful to watch, as are the "dance" moves!)
Those crazy Japanese people
Toilet Training made cute! (Wow, I never thought that taking a sh*t could be so much fun. A talking
toilet, laughing turds, and even a cheering squad when you make Number 1 or 2!)
Kitties carrying fish (A reality TV show
competition -- which cat can carry the largest raw fish away? So cute, so strange!)
Fight! Kikkoman! (A twisted and mildly
disturbing music video about that Soy Sauce hero -- Kikkoman!)
Kitties galore! (Not twisted, but insanely ADORABLE!!)
More kitty cuteness! (Even cuter than the one above!)
Video Game related stuff & clips
Epic Mario -- A 5-episode series about the characters from the original Super Mario Bros. (and the NES
sequel), set in an overly-dramatic (and mildly depressing!) movie about war in the Mushroom Kingdom. Bowser
and his army invade the Mushroom Kingdom, kidnap the princess, and it's up to Mario and Luigi and the
remaining Toad's to fight back and destroy their opponent. If war could appear cute, it would look
like these movies!
Episode 2 (The best episode of them all, in my
harder! (Double Dragon meets Daft Punk - what
an odd combination! I love the pixelated characters).
II: Pimp-Daddy Link (A ROM hack based on the classic NES game, Zelda
II: Adventure of Link. If you, like me, have played this during
childhood, you'll find some great lines here. "When all else fails, use
jizz." "I am a f*ckin midget. It
Maddox kicks a$$

something for you!")
That old car is

since the late 70s, and its still on the air today, unchanged! One of
those commercials that kids of all generations can recite from memory).
