"I rise today to introduce..."

Isn't that a bit too much personal information?

The Onion? Really?
posted by Pope Guilty at 2:29 PM on August 23, 2007


The Onion, haha, is funny, no?

Not even the funniest clip there! You're telling me that was better than this?

That's beautiful.

MetaFilter is most definitely a high-risk skull-fucking area.
posted by phaedon at 2:32 PM on August 23, 2007


I was all "zomg, a single Onion link, are you serious?!" but then I watched it and hearing "skullfucking" repeated about 50 times is hilarious.

All that skullfucking is going to spread visual aids.

Nah, the real gold down the Onion way these days is their Sunday Magazine section.

See for example:

Coefficient of friction
Is the measure of squiction
'Tween your bone and the hole that it mounts.
So when fucking her blind
Try to please keep in mind:
It's not the size of the skull that counts.

Of course, Chris Morris's The Day Today was doing this kind of stuff back in 1994.

Does this prohibit just ocular penetration?

AWESOME! An open Onion thread! Here is my personal favorite, and this actually happened to me, three times in a row.

Well, no Onion awesomeness thread would be complete with the two most prescient political commentaries to appear in American media in the past decade.

First they came for the skullfuckers, and I said nothing, because I was not a skullfucker...

Both delmoi and McLir are correct. Hence, I watched, in horror.
posted by poweredbybeard at 4:17 PM on August 23, 2007


You’re either for the skull fuckers or against them, and some people here seem curiously ambivalent. If those people have nothing to hide then they have nothing to fear from advanced methods of interrogation like getting skull fucked.
posted by Huplescat at 4:41 PM on August 23, 2007


Yeah, ten seconds to check the representatives for Ohio to see that there's no Ben Sinclair. So from there, it's what? the novelty (none) of hearing a parody of a bill in Congress? Ultrameh.

For future reference, you can assume that The Onion is not real.

Like ibmcginty said, they sometimes are remarkably accurate. You never know.

I refer you to the closing line of the clip:

"In closing, let me say this: if we do not open our eyes to reality soon, they will get fucked right out of our heads."

If that doesn't crack you up, just skip The Onion from now on.

Actually though, IMHO, the real prize currently up at the Onion is this: Is Our Wealth Hurting Africa's Feelings?

If you're going to leave lame one link youtube FPP's intact, you might as well leave lame Onion links. Oh boy.

Wow, times have changed. This used to rank only slightly below self-linking in the pantheon of MeFi no-no's.

True that. Matt's getting soft. Maybe it's time he passed on the keys to the site to the next generation.

I don't like one-links, as a rule-of-thumb. But I'm glad this was posted because I've been laughing for hours.

Seriously, though. I hadn't bothered watching Onion video before, and this was funny. Skullfucking is funny.

It would have been better with more links?

At very least, they could have included Nerve's top ten squicking scenes.

Not only did I fact-check the name, I did a search of the Congressional Record to see if this was based on an actual speech by the Ohio 17th District Rep.
