There have been many times that The Onion’s parody headlines have hit the mark like nothing else. On social media: Local Idiot To Post Comment On Internet. On the drug war: Drugs Win Drug War. On animals: Kitten Thinks of Nothing but Murder All Day. On the mental acuity of certain voters: Area Man Passionate Defender of What He Imagines Constitution to Be. On redactions: CIA Realizes It’s Been Using Black Highlighters All These Years. And probably its most republished headline on America’s school shootings: ‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens. Now, America’s Finest News Source (not counting newsletters) is taking its act to the Supreme Court. “A man who was arrested over a Facebook parody aimed at his local police department is trying to take his case to the Supreme Court. He has sought help from an unlikely source, which filed a friend-of-the-court brief on Monday.” (Luckily, it contains no ami-cuss words). NYT (Gift Article): Area Man Is Arrested for Parody. The Onion Files a Supreme Court Brief. Real news headlines have been imitating The Onion for years, so it’s only fair that The Onion makes it into some real headlines. Of course, it’s The Onion, so the brief is more entertaining than most. “The Onion cannot stand idly by in the face of a ruling that threatens to disembowel a form of rhetoric that has existed for millennia, that is particularly potent in the realm of political debate, and that, purely incidentally, forms the basis of The Onion’s writers’ paychecks.” This is an interesting and pretty important case. Seriously. Almost as important as this sports news. Christ Returns to NBA.
