Indy Falls For Onion Spoof

Cringe-inducing stuff from the Indy today. Quite how they still don’t know the Onion is a satirical website is beyond Guido, yet they have managed to run a ‘quote’ from a supposed CNN boss on Miley Cyrus’ dancing, clearly the only story of the day:

Finally addressed some hours later:

  19. 19
    Who is the poodle's poodle? says:

    He is a hero of “I cum dansing”… I think…

    He must be a friend of the Peckhams also

    The fickle foam finger of fate says:

    Too bad the Indy doesn’t do research – the Miley story has some meat in it.

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
