Not sure if this should go here or in Current Events. Oh well.

So long Charlton. I'm sure you'll taste delicious.

This is pretty shitty. I quote Charlton Heston movies on a very regular basis. But he needed to die, Alzhiemer's is a living death anyway.

That is so frickin wrong that I am almost sorry that I laughed so damn hard at it. Almost.


Its even more brilliant because the onion recognized that the entire punchline was in the headline and they went no further. No article at all, just the headline. For once, the onion has chosen brevity, and it was awesome.

I bet that they had that one sitting on the shelves for years just waiting for the day. He should have seen it coming.

Dunno. The link from the main page says it's from the print edition, so there could well be some commentary that goes with it. Hope it gets posted somewhere soon.
