My fellow Americans, if we’re being truly honest with ourselves, I think we can all admit one thing. While the state of the union may be strong, it would have been a hundred times stronger if Buddy were still with us.

Yesterday, The Onion released this “story” about the NYPD’s Stop and Kiss program. It is an obvious parody of the Stop and Frisk controversy in New York City. 

Not everyone understood the joke: these people took to twitter with outrage, because they thought it was real. It’s a must-read in ridiculousness from Gothamist. 

Of course they would think it’s real. They don’t have time to stop-and-think.

Well, here we are. It’s been two years of fighting, over 100,000 people are dead, there are no signs of this war ending, and a week ago I used chemical weapons on my own people. If you don’t do anything about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. If you do something about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. Morally speaking, you’re on the hook for those deaths no matter how you look at it.

So, it’s your move, America. What’s it going to be?

If you need an alternative to The Onion for a while, check out The Ononeon, which essentially takes Reddit content from /r/nottheonion/  … and lays it out like it would look on The Onion. It helps that the current lead item is about The Onion. (ht @putneydm)
