After all, The Onion is a 248-year-old institution with a history of spotless reportage, and nothing can tarnish that.” At press time, the editorial staff of The Onion had confirmed that they could not remember having a better week at work, nor could they remember ever having felt so happy in general with their lives, nor more content with the state of the world as a whole and their place in that world.
