Though their articles still occasionally get taken for the real deal, The Onion
reports only fake news, fake reactions to real news, or non-noteworthy pieces of information presented as news (one headline: Drugs Win Drug War). But whether satirizing or parodying real events on the local, national, or international level, The Onion
is America's leading source of humorous news online (and in print, with a newspaper and several books). In this collection that is sure to offend someone
, editor Scott Dikkers presents headlines and news stories, including an account of the Pentagon's development of an A-bomb-resistant desk for schoolchildren.
