My paychecks all say "The Onion," so I guess it's true!

A paycheck that says "ONION" is almost as cool as one that says "BEARD"

"Artists use lies to tell the truth, politicians tell lies to cover it up"
The Onion is home to some fine artists.

My bar advertises in your publication. As a result, I once got your companies tickets to a Timberwolves game.

Please tell Mr. Onion "thank you" from jracecar.

Much respect for landing jobs at Onion HQ. While I don't know what your jobz be, all y'all commenters that think it's a cherry cakewalk should CLAME and listen to this episode of This American Life from the belly of the beast.

Also, based my hectic experiences writing for the Austin branch of L'Oignon, I can't imagine what corporate is like.

At any rate, thanks for all your hard work, dude(s). It's well worth it.

That joke is way old around these parts. All this Elliott Smith ever talks about is videogames, not winning an Oscar. Alas.

David W. says:
Err, being nominated for one. Whatever. They both own white suits, so it's still plenty confusing sometimes.
