Funny stuff

So i came across a great satirical website, The Onion. I know, I'm late on knowing about it but, yeah they have some really funny shit that i could not think of.

I especially liked the ones entitled

"Our troops send peace goodwill and body armor"
"Al Queda also fed up with ground zero construction delays"

See those videos here
