About The Onion
"Kitten Thinks of Nothing But Murder All Day" and "Thick Sweater No Match For Determined Nipples." These are recent headlines from the The Onion, a satirical weekly newspaper that claims to be "American's Finest News Source." The paper first circulated on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus in 1988 and has seen an increasingly wide readership since going online. The Onion's distinct brand of headline news expanded to include an audio broadcast of "The Onion Radio News" in early 2006, which parodies AP news as read by cartoonist P.S. Mueller posing as Doyle Redland, a journalist who knows two languages, enjoys cooking and lives in Racine, Wisconsin with two black Labs, Freedom and Liberty.
