Oh man. This made my day.
A pro-life blog that apparently took the Onion seriously.
This came out of chattering about the death of irony and satire with kalisphoenix. Blame him, not me. I believe the Onion to be a perfectly valid and useful news source.
Oh man, Phil, that is soooo funny! It is the funniest thing I've seen all week!
i wonder what a post-abortion party would be like. hmmm.
Wow. Um...whether you're for or against on that issue, you gotta agree that she just did something incredibly stupid. I mean, even if there ISN'T some kind of disclaimer for those few who haven't HEARD of the Onion telling people that it actually is a joke...how could she have seriously believed that Onion was not sarcasm? Especially with lines like "I am totally psyched about this abortion!" Has she never heard satire OR sarcasm before? T4L, you need to put her in a room with...well, YOU for a couple of hours until she can recognize it when she sees it. ( :
I'm not sure her mind would survive that much reality.

about six years ago, one of the first articles i read in the onion was this piece about how the dumb are outbreeding the smart by 2:1, and a projection about the subsequent destruction of earth. my head exploded when i realized the onion isn't satire. to me, the onion has more journalistic credibility that the entire mainstream media combined. (i know, i know... that bar isn't very high to begin with...)

omg......read her next post, and she/he was informed of her/his fallacy....and was of course incredibly offended by the nerve of the Onion to do such a satirical piece. Honestly, people just need to lighten up a little....though she/he would prolly think my suggestion that she/he have sense of humour offensive
