Memories of that bar on pre-gentrification Bond Steet, Manhattan, with the good cheap hamburgers and a free jukebox, on which this was the best dance track (well, it was the pogo 80’s.) And bittersweet memories of the late Leida Torres, poet, teacher, and friend.
vruz: FOX is the Onion for people who take fantasy too seriously.
Most people recognize The Onion as the Peabody Award-winning satire machine that it is. Some people, however, don’t. Which is why we get a story like this every few months. Of course, it’s sometimes easy to mistake an Onion article for the real thing since the writers make sure to skew as close to their targets as possible. It also doesn’t hurt when real news outlets reprint the satirists’ work and decide not to let their readers know it’s a joke, as Fox Nation did today.
El Mundo in Spain has picked up some of their stories as well. Conservatives have no sense of irony.
