The Electric Commentary

Wednesday, September 07, 2005

It's funny 'cause it's true.

While some shy away from comedy in the face of tragedy, The Onion gets it right again, in an issue reminiscent of their fantastic post 9/11 classic. Some headlines:

God Outdoes Terrorists Yet Again

Officials Uncertain Whether To Save Or Shoot Victims

Nation's Politicians Applaud Great Job They're Doing

Area Man Drives Food There His Goddamned Self

Bush: 'It Has Been Brought To My Attention That There Was Recently A Bad Storm'

Plus this special editorial from Mexican President Vincente Fox:

The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is The Chupacabra

Read it all. Now.


  • This week's Onion delivers some great headlines, but the hurricane-related stories are a little weak. Obviously, writing a satirical newspaper about widespread death & destruction is not an easy task, but this issue really pales in comparison to the post-9/11 masterpiece.
