    Ok I cracked a smile. It's hard to be mad at the Onion. They're too lovable and funny :)

    Last time I checked they aren't making fun of the Browns. It's only funny if it is completely satirical.....

    They usually go after the Raiders and Lions when they need a bad team to make fun of.

    For the intellectually challenged, maybe. Not to mention those with short memories that don't date back to say...2006. Since one would entirely invalidate the basis for their comedy seeing as we led by 15 at that half...

    Some people need to lighten up. It's the Onion. :rolleyes:

    Relax...

    It's time now to focus on making Teletubby cry from the sidelines.

    I can't decide which is funnier, the Onion piece or the people here who are taking the Onion seriously... :singing:

    I saw that earlier today and thought about posting it. But then I thought "too soon?" Not for me: I laughed.

    Regards,

    I knew you were anal on usual Pats threads, but seriously, take the stick out of your arse. It's THE ONION.

    That's half the reason I posted it, The Onion is great, but people who react to it seriously make it waaay more funny, albeit unintentionally. The joke's not on the Pats, MoLewisrocks, it's on you, "entirely invalidate the basis for their comedy" is the real comedy.

    Love love the Onion. I love the wit and sarcasm. I sure hope my butt never gets so cemented shut that I feel otherwise.
