    Just lie most in sports, thy actually think what they are doing is somehow of universal importance, you know like finding a cure for cancer, or how to end the drought....get over yourself man....you're talking about other people playing a "game"....key word "game"

    It was amusing, but like SNL, it too has gone downhill.

    It is called satire and anyone who could think the stories are meant to be taken seriously are foolish.

    It's hilarious because most of their jokes are founded in a bit of truth.

    You'd have to be an idiot to believe that the Onion is real. Even the name suggests satire.

    Hey, they got me a couple times too, so I can't argue too much, and in the end he did give them credit for fooling him. "It's cool!"

    If you don't know what The Onion is, It is very easy to be tricked by them. The site looks so legitimate that you gloss over the fact that their name is THE ONION. I guess Stephan Smith is a Dish Subscriber.

    My husband said that would be a great April Fool's Day joke for The Onion to play: republish actual news stories that are so bizarre, they sound fake but are real.

    Politicians were created to control them, The Onion was created to distract them from that fact.
