Best satire of all time?

Since 2007 they've gone online and started making videos. I've been watching a lot of them lately and the writing is ingenious. It's hilarious but at the same very meaningful and true. These are my favourite reports so far:

Their website is awesome too, the headlines alone are hysterical.

It's also amusing how many people think the reports are real.

As far as satirical news groups go, I'd say the onions is the best. We get the news paper at my college for free... but since I hate all the smarmy assholes that pass them out, I never get them....

It's funny in a subtle way not 'ha ha ha I think I pissed my pants' way. Though it has a good dose of satire on what's happening in the present world. I like it though I would get tired of frequenting it a lot.

The Onion is great, I can't recall watching an "The Onion" report and not being amused. Definitely worth reading & watching, especially if you appreciate sarcastic humour.

I love their videos too! They're hilarious... Especially the real life Call of Duty thing, that got me hooked
