I remember my first exposure to the satirical newspaper The Onion.

A friend of mine had a subscription to the newspaper all the way back in 1996 when hardly anyone had heard of it outside of a few big cities.

I immediately thought that it was hilarious and I’ve followed the journey of the newspaper ever since. And they’re still going strong!

And it’s REALLY funny when people think that headlines from The Onion are real…and it seems like there are a lot of them out there…

Here are some hilarious responses from folks who believed that these news stories were the real deal.

Enjoy.
