I miss the free print edition that was in the Twin Cities for a spell.

That's sad.  Even sadder that outlived most of the print papers it spoofed.

I remember reading the Onion back when I was in school in Madison 20 years ago. Never imagined it would've become as big as it has. I still remember remember the first time I saw the print edition here in Chicago in the late 90s, I nearly lost my mind.

I went to high school with the founders.  Everyone thought it was funny, but no one thought it would be so sucessful.

Do they still have a print edition anywhere? The local edition here int he Bay Area only lasted a couple years. And the last time I saw the national print edition was at Tower Records.

A sad day.  I went to UW-Madison in from 96-01 and everyone, and I mean everyone, read the onion. To the point where if you weren't out early enough on Thursday, most racks were empty.  By Friday you had to know which lonely rack in a back corner university building to look in to find a copy.  Or grab one out of a trash can in the Union of you weren't picky.

Of course, I also remember buying cheap/cool stuff at the military surplus store by the square (torn down to make room for the Overture Center), being 19 and not getting carded for beer at University Square movie theater (torn down and replaced by some building with chain stores in it), and sneaking into Liz Waters, aka the "Virgin Vault", to meet chicks (now coed).

I think the big two things to going Madison in the 90s were discovering The Onion and meeting Scanner Dan for the first time, at least if were over on the east side of campus or hung out there.

I was on the east side of campus too - Expresso Royale and the Unions were my big hangouts. I did make friends with one of the managers at the U Square Theaters (he was in my wedding and I still hang out with him once a month), he got me into so many employee screenings back then, it was great.

Scanner Dan... seeing him was like a rite of passage.

The Onion's online edition was as good as I was ever going to get living in Massachusetts.  But when I made a pilgrimage out to those parts in 1995 or so there was only one request I made of the two people I was going along for the drive with; I want to come back with a print copy of The Onion.

And so from 1996 to 2000 as an Undergrad every Wednesday night in the CompSci Lab we would want with great anticipation for the new edition to be published.  Browsers were refreshed quietly and randomly until one person would exclaim "It's up!!!!" and we would all rush to a terminal and for the next hour or so things would be silent, printers would go without paper, Grad students would be ignored and no work got done.

It's near impossible to think of how my college experience would have been without The Onion.

Yep, sad day in Mad City.  Even worse, you would hardly even know today is the last day for a print edition.  Lots of bus/car v bike accidents and the reticketing of the Capitol protesters have taken center stage.  It boggles my mind that the city from which The Onion sprung has lost its desire.  FFS, Savage Love started in the back room of a video store on State Street!  Big fan of Anchower and his car that never seemed to run.  Recent favorite headline:  Stanley Cup shot 11 times during victory parade.

Same here. I remember many a fine evening at Memorial Union drinking beer, listening to whatever band was playing at the Rathskeller if it was a Friday or Saturday, and yep Expresso Royale was a daily thing. Actually usually was two or three times in a day.

And as for Scanner Dan yep was definitely a right of passage and since I lived on Gilman I walked past him a few times a day ever day even befriend him a bit.

seanpg71: where U Square Theater used to be, so that's cool I guess


I remember buying by first legal pack of cigs at the Walgreens at the end of State Street. It was my 18th birthday, my third day in Madison and I remember feeling a biatcheated when I wasn't asked for ID. Yeah I hadn't yet figured out that in 1992 in Madison no one was going to hold up a line to ask for ID for a pack of Camels.

I was there for the Rose Bowl. I remember running down to State Street after the Badges beat Michigan State in Tokyo of all places. And seeing what 20,000 people crammed into a few blocks of State Street was awesome. I ended up being among a few dozen who headed over to Camp Randall where they let us run around the field for about 15 minutes.

Speaking of mob scenes, I remember the midnight release for Pearl Jam's Vs at the Exclusive Company, I got there early in hopes of being one of the first 100 so I could get the special t-shirt. And sure enough I was. Only thing is when the door opened I thought I was going to be crushed, and at one point I heard a crack and thought "Oh shiat, that's my ribs". Nope, just someone getting pushed through the plate glass window. I remember the news the next day saying over 10,000 copies of the CD were sold in Madison at various midnight release events, think the Exclusive Company sold something like 1,500.

In an effort to be hip, the guy that bought and then lost the Inquirer brought the Onion to Philly. It lasted almost two months and no one wanted to write for it. Then the editor was assaulted during those summer rampages the kids were doing and broke her leg and used it as a platform to whine about it.

This is great stuff.  I was bartending at the Big Ten Pub on Tokyo Bowl Night.  Easily my favorite shift (that I remember)* of all time.  Kickoff was something like 1030 pm, and people were gettting there at 200 to get tables.  I had previously delivered flowers for a nearby shop, so I arranged for some "day olds" to be dropped off "just in case."   Of course, Big Red kicked ass, and it was TOTAL BEDLAM in that bar until well into the next morning. We handed out "roses" to every single person in that bar, and drank as if Armageddon were nigh.   No one cared.  The owner was right there with us.  Few remember that UW had to agree to forfeit a home game to "grow the brand."  After the dark days of the Morton Veer Offense, this was no small sacrifice, as the game was supposed to be in Camp Randall.   What a night.  Number 2 favorite shift.

*Worked the close shift after we beat UCLA 21-16.  Can't remember the start.  Number One!

Their movie was very disappointing.Think I only laughed twice.  "How to Host a Rape" game and "Area Man Loses Sock" were quality.  And then there was 85 minutes of forgettable.

Darke: talkertopc: Am I the only one that didn't know that The Onion had a printed version?

No, not the only one. I've only seen the online version.


Hadn't occurred to me either, even though we have a couple hardcopy collections.

I don't know what happened a few years back, but it got sufficiently unfunny that I deleted the bookmark.

brap: That's sad.  Even sadder that outlived most of the print papers it spoofed.


Nah, the Timeses, the Postses, the Tribses, and USA Today are still around.

/ As long as CNN has an audience, so will USA Today

The best print edition of The Onion was the 1783 reprint they did in 2008. Staggering quality for a free newspaper.
Best article (ever) was Mischievous Woman Wonder'd Outside Of Home. I have never lost my shiat so many times reading the same words as to this article.
