"Then it is dark; a night where kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains." - John Cheever
Haven't been to The Onion for months. Still very good in places, but overall feels as if it's run out of steam a bit.
Yeah - I've got it mentally filed under "not as funny as it was."
I don't approve of this video business. Not that I've watched any of them, but I don't think that sort of satiritical humour travels well. I've tried watching that 'Daily Show with Jon Stewart' - a sort of American Rory Bremner without impressions - and it just doesn't do it for me.
I wondered if the Onion could ever make enough money to keep going. I suspect all of their best gag writers are now working for the Simpsons etc
