Publisher Comments:

"The Onion is laugh-out-loud, go-tell-your-friends, get-angry-you-didn't-think-of-it funny."<BR>-Conan O'Brien <BR>"Outside of maybe Dario Fo, an Italian who few are sure exists, the Onion people make the most consistently perfect and excoriating social commentary we currently have. But will those Nobel bastards honor them, too? Only God, our merciless and just God, knows."<BR>-Dave Eggers <BR>"The funniest publication in the United States."<BR>-Th"e New Yorker <BR>"This publication is tasteless and destructive to our shared values. Read it for yourself and you'll see what I mean. Seriously, what else could make me laugh-much less laugh uproariously-while being offended week after week after week?"<BR>-Al Gore <BR>"The Onion is the funniest thing in news since Dan Rather's spooky stare."<BR>-Matt Groening <BR>"Brutal satire that rushes into the far reaches of race, class, sexuality, and culture where many publications-and critics-fear to tread."<BR>-"Chicago Tribune <BR>"The Onion, unlike any other entity in our media culture, offers a refreshingly honest look at our complicated life."<BR>-Ken Burns

Review:

"With a surfeit of social/cultural commentary subtexts, some savage, The Onion has more layers than one might think. This collection offers thoroughly entertaining stuff like 'Nation's Last Themeless Restaurant Closes' and 'New Study Too Frightening to Release.'...Some pieces are short ('Ritalin Cures Next Picasso'), some long, and this collection, with more than 500 b&w photos, illustrations, charts and maps, garners genuine guffaws. No matter how you slice it, The Onion has appeal." Publishers Weekly
