I noticed The Onion has started showing up for free around downtown, next to the Chronicle. I’ve seen it at Halcyon, Royal Blue Grocery, Antone’s, and at the restaurant called The Onion on fifth street. While looking up these links I found an article from the Statesman about it.
I’ve been a huge fan of The Onion ever since Herbert Kornfeld first told me that West Wing Tech-Support Crew Be a Buncha Wack Bitches, and have thought they were comedy gods since they took over The Daily Show. It’s good to see they’ve finally got smart and come out with a local Austin edition, complete with local advertising and stories.
There was an article in there about Fun Fun Fun Fest, in which I learned that it is, for some completely mysterious reason, tomorrow, rather than Saturday, and starts at 2. This sucks for me, because I wanted to go, and sucks for them, because unless it warms up, the kind of people that go to Fun Fun Fun Fest are not usually the kind to brave the cold so much.
There was also this column in there, Savage Love, that I’d heard about before, but never read. It’s fucking hilarious sex advice. You should go read it and all the archives.
Oh, and one other thing: I found out in this issue that Fox News is planning a conservative rip-off of The Daily Show, to which I can only say: Hahahahahaahahahahahahhahaahahhaaaahahahahahaha. Everybody knows conservatives don’t get satire. It’s because you have to turn in your sarcasm gland before they give you your Mark Foley campaign button.
Christ. I’ve got to get up in five hours to go talk to a pissed-off guy on the phone. That should be fun. Peace out.
I wonder where all these page views are coming from?
