10/9/2009 - The Day "the ONION" took over

Just as a reminder why I think 10/9/2009 will go down in the history books as the day on which The Onion clearly took over the world, I'll give you my 4 favorites of yesterday's headlines - in order of Onion-ness:

Taliban condemn Obama as Nobel Prize winner

NASA's 'Moon Bombing:' Crashing in a Crater, Looking for Ice

Marge Simpson Playboy Cover a Bold Controversial Cartoon

China calls on world media to tell nothing but the truth

Apropos the Onion, Mad Minerva pointed me to the following quiz: Actual Newspaper Story or the ONION Headline? I scored 8/12. This solid 67% (6 above the average at that time) qualifies for calling myself "Media Expert" from now on, I think.
