One of my favorite destinations on the web is The Onion, the news satire site that tackles real world events like the recent pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.
Or the recent concerns over application of the death penalty in the United States.
Johnson & Johnson Hoping Brand Won’t Be Tarnished If They Dip Into Lethal Injection Game
Or maybe events involving celebrities, sports or drug use. Or this trifecta.
Michael Phelps Banned From Having Any Contact With Water For 6 Months
One my favorite things that The Onion does is to apply the earnest style of newspaper reporting to the most ordinary things, the most humdrum parts of the human condition.
But today I saw this headline posted on The Onion and I had to wonder, did an actual news story get inserted into all the satirical headlines? Because this...
...this is my life.
Oh, and this story takes place in North Carolina. Where I live.
Oh, shit! The guy kind of even looks like me!
C'mon, is someone watching me?
They call me...The Disdainanator.
OK, nobody calls me that, but....
Oh, shut up!
I'm so glad my suffering amuses you.
