Home | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

I don't know what source of entertainment you look forward to each week, but for me, it's The Onion.

Yeah, yeah, it comes out on Tuesday, but I'm only going to get to enjoy once a week, and Tuesday is too damn early.

Wednesday, at best represents the end of 60% of the work week. Still, too early, but the goddamned has been removed from my mental description thereof.

Thursday is a good day for reading the Onion, especially when we're closing in on the end of the day. A Friday without the Onion? I can live with that.

Friday's a little more problematic. It's easy to lose track of an unread Onion, what with the hangover and the making of the weekened plans and whatnot. And honestly, if you wait til 3:30-4 to read The Onion, you've really lost all of the 'making work more bearable' goodness that the Onion provides.

For max appreciation, you've got to read the Onion before lunch on Friday. During a Carne Asada/Chicken Tikka Masala food coma is nearly as good. Nothing clears away the cumin cobwebs like satire.

As far as this week's Onion, here's my favorite story, buried in the local news. Sam Moses, you are not alone.
