  1. The Onion To Debut New Website Parodying Buzzfeed and Upworthy

    I can't make a sub-header joke when I'm writing about The Onion. That's flying a little too close to the sun.

    America's Finest News Source has a new platform for satirizing uniquely 20th century media--on Tuesday The Onion announced Clickhole.com, a site dedicated to parodying Upworthy , Buzzfeed, and endless over-sharing.

  2. Onion A.V. Club Animates Patton Oswalt’s Story of a Magical Black Man

    Patton Oswalt Tells the Story Of A Magical Black Man Who Haunted His Early Career

    Patton Oswalt is known for a lot of things like acting, writing, and voicing cartoon rodents, but he is first and foremost a brilliant standup comedian. That's not always an easy life, especially when you're first starting out. In the first episode of the new series Stand Down by The Onion A.V. Club, Oswalt recounts the tale of a magical black man who haunted his early career. The story is better than the animation itself, but they come together nicely.

  3. Neil deGrasse Tyson Thinks The Onion Deserves A Pulitzer [Video]

    Famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has come out with a video in support of The Onion news network. Tyson is particularly proud of the way The Onion handled that whole Pluto debacle, and feels the publication deserves the highest honor in journalism, the Pulitzer Prize. Of course, Tyson's video is as much a parody as The Onion itself.

  4. Literally Unbelievable, a Tumblr Devoted to People Who Think Onion Articles Are Real

    This looks promising: Literally Unbelievable is a new Tumblr that screencaps outraged Facebook comments on Onion articles from people who either haven't noticed that the article in question is from The Onion or simply don't know that The Onion is a satirical publication. As it so happens, there are a lot of these people. The blog's creator writes: "I curate the site and wanted to make it clear that these people are being completely earnest. Certainly I saw a good number that were inside jokes, ironic posts or trolling, but the ones I posted are 100% the real deal." (Literally Unbelievable via Gorilla Mask)

  5. Onion Iron Man 2 Spoof: “Buzz Heats Up Over Rumors Gwyneth Paltrow Gets Punched in the Face”

    Onion News Network has done up another one of their haw-haw-making, (presumably) fake news reports, dually inspired by Iron Man 2 fandom and the Gwyneth Paltrow backlash, titled "Iron Man 2 Buzz Heats Up Over Rumors Gwynyth Paltrow Gets Punched in the Face." Spoiler alert: it's really funny.

  6. Wisconsin Declares Its State Microbe: Lactococcus lactis

    In yet another example of real news almost being less believable than The Onion (no really), last week Wisconsin declared that Lactococcus lactis was the official state microbe.

    The New York Times reports:

    “The first time I heard the idea, I thought, I’ve got more important things to do than spending my time honoring a microbe,” said Gary Hebl, a Democratic state representative who proposed the bill which, he says, would make Wisconsin the first state in the nation to grant such a designation. “But this microbe is really a very hard worker.”

  7. The Onion Coming to Comedy Central with Sports Show

    Potentially good news for sports and comedy fanatics: Comedy Central just announced they're picking up the pilot for The Onion Sports Network for a ten-episode run. The series is named after, and based on, the sports section of fake news pioneer The Onion.
