Anonymous reader reminded me of the Onion’s videos – the one he mentioned, Obama visits a Denny’s, is fine, but this baby shaker spot is even better.

Back in the days before Al Gore invented the internet, I used to READ the Onion, distributed in street-side newspaper boxes. Now, almost exclusively online, the paper and its sister, The Onion News Network, “get over a million downloads a week, which makes it one of the more successful produced-for-the-Internet videos.” [from Wiki]
I’d be happy to be stranded on an island with any or all of these writers. Don’t you feel sorry for people who don’t have a sense of humor to appreciate this good stuff?
Many good Onion videos, but the first one that comes to my mind is “How to Find a Masculine Halloween Costume for Your Effeminate Son,” http://www.theonion.com/video/how-to-find-a-masculine-halloween-costume-for-your,14378/
The bad news: It’s getting harder and harder to tell the ONN from real news broadcasts.
