Comedy , News

The Onion is an American digital media company and news satire organization. It runs an entertainment website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news, in addition to a non-satirical entertainment section known as The A.V. Club, and a creative services division called Onion Labs. It says 90 percent of its web site readers are between 18 and 44 years old. Since 2007, the organization has published satirical news audio and video online, as the "Onion News Network".[4] Web traffic on theonion.com amounts to an average of 11 million unique visitors per month.

The Onion's articles comment on current events, both real and fictional. It parodies traditional news websites with stories, editorials, op-ed pieces, and man-in-the-street interviews, using a traditional news website layout and an editorial voice modeled after that of the Associated Press. Its humor often depends on presenting mundane, everyday events as newsworthy, surreal or alarming ("Wedding DJ Assures Anxious Man He Hasn't Forgotten Build Me Up Buttercup Request") or parodying the media's portrayal of news ("Poll: 56% Of Voters Say Country Better Off Than It Was 4 Eons Ago").

My boyfriend really likes sports, so I read an article about Donald Sterling to try and talk about things he likes with him. So we go to dinner, and I casually slip in "so I read they retired Donald Sterling's jersey today."

Turns out he's not a basketball player.

Thanks, The Onion, for ruining my relationship. Go fuck yourself.

I've completely lost all respect for this news source since the Taylor Swift/Christopher Dorner coverage. It is revolting. I. AM. REVOLTED. You know if I lost my husband, who (may or may not be) a cop BY THE WAY, I would be devastated especially if he was a shining example of a motivated, community centric officer. And honestly, it doesn't matter if you have had one love or a metric ton of love or a billion gazillion loves or a smidgen of love, or one single Benedict Cumberbatch love (the best love(er)), you should never make fun of someone who has lost a love. It breaks my heart that she lost him right before Valentine's Day. Literally, that is THE day to celebrate love. You celebrate it on the street corners and dressed in pink (of course). I'm so disappointed in The Onion for attempting to destroy Mz Swift's reputation.

I WILL NEVER READ YOU AGAIN! My Dad says you are a bunch of "red bastard commies" so it's no wonder I think you're worthless.

In other words, I love you and I love that people fall for your hilarious BS over and over again. Job well done!

The greatest news troll website on the internet.

Tired of someone blathering on unintelligibly about the way things work in the world? Direct them to an article of your choosing and watch them foam at the mouth. Conservative or liberal, The Onion has enough satirical ammo to satisfy your needs.

Always entertaining and sharp as a tack, The Onion would have make Mark Twain proud.

The History of English Podcast

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...
