30 Titles From Fox And The Onion — Can You Guess Which Are From Where?


The Progressive Populist has a hilarious piece last month called, "15 Of The Dumbest Political Facebook Posts From Right-Wingers! (Face-Palm Alert!)."



One of the posts reminded us of another essay this month from Addictinginfor.org, "30 Titles From Fox And The Onion — Can You Guess Which Are From Where?," reminding us that with the exception of Dave Barry Conservatives are woefully low in the humor department (n.b. Dennis Miller and Victoria Jackson) and we reprint the essay for your viewing pleasure, with a few pics to capture the stylistic flavor of the two "news" agencies:

"What if Anonymous secretly switches Fox and the Onion’s articles around? Would anyone notice? Well, we’re about to find out.

Try this test on Conservative friends and family members, if you have the misfortune to have any, and stand back to see the fun and frivolity ensue.

While this post isn't really demonstrative of criminalizing Conservatism, it does point to possibilities inherent in the Sheeplet belief system in regard to their intellectually-challenged minds as we've shown in 57 previous posts (http://www.criminalizeconservatism.com/search/label/conservatives_are_stupid), and offers yet another piece of evidence that the Sheeplets are to be pitied rather than punished when Conservatism is finally banned from the country.

Yes, the essay indicates the depths of stupidity, insanity, hatred, and paranoia that the righties have infected the country with, but fun is fun and we've promised to add a little entertainment to our efforts to educate the uninformed and apathetic voter.
