Finally, Perfection

If we were gonna spend our time posting all the hysterically funny things in The Onion, then we might as well just put up a mirror site. All their shit is good. I particularly liked their recent piece about a "normal gay teen" who "thought he might be Christian".

But this is one is the best. Their obit to JD Salinger is just goddam perfect (that goddam was for you JD. You're my boy.)

Relatedly, I've read The Catcher in the Rye like 5 times now and it never gets old. I still laugh out loud. And I'm still mesmerized by Salinger's perfect use of irony. And that's irony with it's actual intended meaning, not the synonym for "coincidence" that it has come to mean today.
