The entries that are obviously just pulling your leg ... are funny, but when an Onion article is more true than MSM ... that is priceless!

And here is the truth about the Obama economic recovery ...

Except that guy would have actually gotten a part time job at McDonalds, so his work-life-balance would still be screwed.

The second link, which I was looking forward to, brought up a potential Utube window, but it just kept loading for 3 minutes until I exited the site.  The first link was brilliant.  I wonder what it would be like to spend an evening drinking beer with those Onion guys.

Open in a new window.  Click on Full Article on the left, it opens a 404 error, close that, and like magic, the original window is running.  Javascript error?

Good Grief.  I'm not sure I can remember all that.  It's gotta be at least three steps.

Its the Atheist 3-step program.

1.  Admit that you are superstitious.
2.  Realize that you are in control of your life.
3.
