Yep. The funny thing is that Onion's "news" is actually rather often based off something that happens pretty often in reality. Many of their news stories have some truth to them. It's satire, and even though some of their stories are very over the top and completely unbelievable, some are just a stretch of what is already gong on.
I like both of these types of "news" stories.
