    I'm inferring from his reference to 'the cruel joke that is existance' (his spelling not mine) that he's not a deeply religious person.

    I especially like the article about ATM celebrating their 1999 bowl victory after Penn State was forced to vacate it.

    Let's just face facts here. People are reverse-evolving right now. Yes, the government is going to spend billions of dollars on a dragon-shaped piece of construction equipment or a human being is going to be put down because they have a broken bone. What's even more scary? These are the people that drive next to you in the morning or that you see in the market.

    How do we know that the people posting aren't being equally as satirical as the Onion articles themselves?
