      Funny stuff!


      All business

        I love the Onion, but Meb would totally beat that horse in a 26.2 mile race.

        Hey, nice marmot!

          Added Wittenberg, "Also, just before the start, he lifted up his tail and loudly deposited a 9-inch-high pile of steaming fecal matter on the pavement, an unusual occurrence even in the world of long-distance running."

            the last bit about Paula was more painful than funny to read, though.

              It would not be the first such race.

                  Sometimes the onion is funny and others not - This time not so much

                    Yeah, not funny.

                     

                     

                    I really enjoyed how, in DC, the onion is a physical paper and has little newspaper machines.

                      Yeah, didn't like it much either.

                       

                      Now, "Pissed off, Skinny, Distance Runners Challenge CNBC Reporter to a Cage Fight" has a nice ring to it.

                        Ok, it could have been funny in a different situation, but when I realized it was a spoof I felt more a sense of relief than a desire to laugh. Meb's story was one of the more inspirational I've heard in a long time. When you add to it his display of emotion at the finish...well...I didn't want the headline to be true...kind of a sick feeling.

                          I thought it was funny.

                           

                          Related to other posts, Meb's accomplishment was absolutely awesome. How exciting!

                            Absolutley.  I moused over the link, saw that it was the onion, and breathed a huge sigh of relief.

                              I had the same feeling as Jim but to be fair to the Onion it was Trent's link title and subject heading that was alarming. The Onion headline is just typically Onion:

                              Unless Horse is still a popular street name for heroin I doubt anyone will be mislead by that headline....
