This explains so much, right?

You can't believe in what is written in the Onion. There's more fantasy running through that paper than at a sci-fi convention.

Well, as the Onion's specialty is parody and satire, you betcha. I do think (as Greg Feeley has noted elsewhere) that much of the Onion's best work is in its headlines; the articles tend to go on too long and belabor a slim point.

Question- Have you ever read -A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R.R. Martin?

Not only is this book 700 pages long but I'm in the middle of it and it's so back a forth with so many characters that I hear myself saying "I can't do it captain!"

This book has gotten many good reviews but I'm wondering if I missed something or are all the reviewers from the same planet, because reading this book is like cutting into tough meat and by the time I get a bite its cold.

The Onion starts by brainstorming headlines, and seeing how far the ideas take them -- the sidebars, the news-in-briefs, and features all start the same way, iow.
