Blog highlights real headlines that read like they’re in The Onion
Onion-like Headlines in Real Life
Like life and art, sometimes journalism imitates satire. This blog captures examples of actual news headlines that read like they've been taken from The Onion: "Alton attorney accidentally sues himself," "Teen's dad spends school year waving at bus, embarrassing son," and "Service rat licks woman when it’s time to take meds." If that's not enough irony for you, the blog "Literally Unbelievable" highlights Facebook discussions in which people think Onion stories are real. Examples: "Church cancelled due to lack of God" and "Obama finishes deal to get every American a free parrot."
