Not wrong, but I think more relevant would be riffing off Douglas Adams' 'little green pieces of paper' bit.

The Onion tries to be comedy but posts fact instead.

Satire? I think not. Good day, sir!

I personally can't imagine how crazy you have to be, to get upset about an actor's race, enough to comment in public about it.

I can't stand it when an actor signs up for a charity 5k and then they just walk!!

In 2012, Gravity Falls had a Hispanic merman, named Mermando.

I don't recall hearing any fuss about it.

Well maybe it's because some of us didn't watch the show and are only hearing about this right now. But you better believe I'm upset! Very, VERY upset!

I mean come on, his name was "Mermando"? That's awful.

Someone should take The Onion out behind the barn and put it out of it's misery.
They lost their mojo long ago and it's time to admit they're not going to get it back.

I for one am totally against Halle Berry being the little mermaid because she is in her 50s for Christ sake. Not that I wouldn't still do her, I mean she's still quite attractive, but playing a teenage mermaid is a bit od a stretch.  Was Zendaya not available?

Sounds like you're pissy that they wrote this article about you.

It was an odd choice for Disney to portray Arial as fully nude with photorealistic fish bits.

You're thinking of The Lighthouse.

Yeah, I don't care what color the mermaid is, but there absolutely must be a scene in which Robert Pattinson dreams about having sex with the vagina/fin thing on the front of her fish parts.

Stardate 2434.2, First Officer's log:

On a routine patrol flight in the Milky Way galaxy, I discovered on our space sensors an unidentified planet, careening wildly in an eccentric solar orbit. I ordered an immediate investigation and, with much difficulty, maneuvered our ship for a temporary orbit

Upon beaming down to the planet's surface, all I could see were ruins. Ruins of some type of civilization; crumbled buildings, deserted streets, charred vegetation, all covered with a thick layer of dust which our scanners indicated as intensely radioactive

I proceeded to make a through survey of the area. According to my calculations, I could tell that some recent phenomenon or holocaust had occurred and destroyed whatever advanced civilization had existed on the planet. I found no sign of life

As I made my way back to the ship, I heard a sound. It came from a cellar, in one of the nearby buildings. Carefully and slowly, I found my way to the source and discovered a human being. Or rather, what once was a human being; a scarred, disfigured man lying in the rubble
When I questioned him, he told me this had once been a great world. They had abundance and plenty, intelligence, beauty, love; there was enough for everyone who lived there. But the inhabitants were never satisfied. They wanted more; they wanted everything. And they started to quarrel amongst themselves. They could not live in peace and they tried to destroy each other. In doing this they destroyed everything; their abundance, their plenty, their own intelligence, their beauty, their love

He told me that, so far as he knew, he was the only living thing left, but that he knew he was dying. When I asked him the name of the planet, he replied, "We called it Earth."

Spot On doesn't mean funny.

In another thread last week someone posted a link to the funniest Onion article in awhile (their ascription, not mine)... About the Queen dying. It was not even remotely funny.

Onion lost it's swagger back when they started an Onion News Network, that was in 2007.

Come on though, it's hard to punch up something that's already so funny on it's own

Every time there's an Onion topic I cay they're losing their mojo and just aren't funny any more.
And very very small amount of their articles are about old white guys.
