The Onion v. SCOTUS

The Onion has filed an amicus brief with SCOTUS regarding a 1st Amendment case.
It is an absolutely brilliant bit of writing.

That isn't masters degree level
It's not even PHD level smart assery
That is cutting edge, world class, tip of the spear smartassery.

I had no idea that the Onion has been around since 1756.
I knew their reporting was historic - but damn - 1756.
That feels like proof that aLg0re didn't really help invent the internet.
...but I think it might still be fake; a daily readership of 4.3 trillion sounds like bullshit. Actually readership numbers must be two or three times that amount.

Besides, if it was real, it would have a REAL document number, like say, No. 21A834
...or something along those lines.

I have to go find some privacy right now - I have a freedom boner and I have to do something about it before freedom boners are outlawed due to their high degree of inequity.





Tu stultus es, indeed.

Not as funny as The Onion, but The Babylon Bee is piling on as well.

Maybe it’s time for Box to file an amicus brief.
