#1 I want everyone to know that I was voted the runner-up.

But I forced them to keep that result a secret when I found out that the top man was "Tubby The Korean Kitten". How was I supposed to know that he borrowed a silk smoking jacket from Hugh Heffner??? It's unfair competition, if you ask me. :-(

#2 Can you blame them? I mean, how could they not take it seriously? Just look at the guy...

#3 And that's dad, who I also believe was named Sexiest Man of All Time by the Onion, not Sonny Doughboy...

#4 Western satire is too much for inscrutable Chinese minds.

#5 Western satire is too much for inscrutable Chinese minds.
The geniuses of the Muslim world seem to have a problem with it too.

#6 My favorite Onion headline:

"98% of commuters favor public transportation -- for everyone else."

That is so-o-o-o true...

#7 What I want is for the 2% of folks who don't know how to drive to have their own highway just for them.

#8 The best is still "CLINTON DEPLOYS VOWELS TO BOSNIA: CITIES OF SJLBVDNZV, GRZNY TO BE FIRST RECIPIENTS". I offered to donate the unnecessary vowels in my middle name for that one.

And then there's the Onion's video: "Supreme Court Rules that Death Penalty is 'Totally Badass'", complete with all nine Justices declaiming that they were "The Law".

#9 The Onion + Scrappleface.

Looks like the Chinese are red-faced about it.
