You do know that The Onion is a humor site and not a real newspaper, though, right?

I thought it was rather amusing. I wasn't offended in the least...

Loyal Onion reader for years. And I'm more conservative than anything else. One would have to be the village idiot -- or the most literal person on the planet -- to not realize that the Onion is SATIRE. And they go out of their way to offend everybody. Those of us with thick skins can take it.

That is hilarious! I had no idea that site existed. And I had no idea that there are that many gullible people in the world.

I love The Onion, but not that particular piece. That happens though.

Well, the woman who wrote the article is definitely bigoted against the undead. I mean, what's with writing men off just because they are "currently deceased"... come on, vampires and zombies have feelings too! Although maybe I should cut her some slack for being so accepting of and willing to date Toons like Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, and Huckleberry Hound. If Roger Rabbit taught me anything, it's the discrimination Toons face day-to-day.



I like the Onion too, not this piece so much though because it rambled too long and ruined the funny.

I thought it was funny, mostly because I often mistake men for plastic cups (or vice versa).

Don't know how anyone can read more than two sentences of that garbage.
Very few facts are written among paragraphs of useless gibberish.
Um ... really?

And to the rest of you who didn't get it, ahem, maybe a second reading is in order. It reminded me of a lot of posters on here.

I got it just fine I just think it is stupid.
Not getting it and thinking it is stupid are two completely different things and if I thought it was stupid the first time, I am going to think it is even more stupid the second time.
Except there won't be a second time of reading it because I won't waste my time.

You beat me to it! Someone was VERY angry over "stop and kiss" on the NYC forum and I posted that same link.

I love the Onion. I think their polls and graphs are the best. I laugh every time.
