Air Force Onion

Remember how the lame-O White House told The Onion to stop using the Presidential seal because Federal law prohibits the seal from being used by "commercial ventures or products in any way that suggests presidential support or endorsement." Well, last week's Onion "retaliated." First, by writing an article entitled Bush Orders Mass Bald Eagle Slaughter To Stop Spread Of Bird Flu, which, like any Onion article is funny enough... especially since it is an article about the President personally eradicating Bald Eagles to prevent avian flu. But, to me, the funniest part is the last paragraph:
The Office Of The White House Counsel, which oversees the usage of all executive-branch insignias, is expected to approve a new eagle-free presidential seal as early as next week.
Hmmm.... I wonder if next week's Onion might have a new and improved "Presidential Seal" which allows them to use the seal without using the seal. As usual, The Onion is hilarious, and in the process outsmarts the White House while giving them a mighty "Fuck You!" Brilliant.

Sorry to shit on your cake, but this "brilliant" response comes after they were skewered for this "hilarious" response last week.

I know you are using "quotes" attempting to invoke "sarcasm," but I did find the "Weekender" Cover funny. Maybe the question is, if you are so uptight, why do you even look at The Onion?

"Actually", the first quote was your description. As for being uptight, I read the Onion when I see links to it elsewhere on teh intarweb, and also to see how far it's fallen since moving from Madison.
