Great gift idea: Our Front Pages by the Onion

Sorry the blog has been so silent lately, but we’ve all been slammed by the holiday rush that is retail in November and December!

In the meantime, here’s a great gift suggestion for you:

The Onion, dubbed the “funniest publication in the United States” by the New Yorker, has long been a balm for the sore souls of people like me, who can only take so much of the disaster-peddling that is called the modern media scene. Anything that can turn CNN-inspired despair to laughter is greatly appreciated in my world, and the Onion is always spot on.

David Sedaris is recommending last year’s Onion book, Our Dumb World, during his current tour, but there’s also the new release Our Front Pages: 21 Years of Greatness, Virtue, and Moral Rectitude from America’s Finest News Source, in time for hilarious holiday gift-giving, which compiles the front pages (duh) of the paper from its youth as a free campus weekly through its 21-year evolution to the mock-media powerhouse it is today.  Printed in a large format in full color, this makes the perfect present: Give it to a relative and then spend a good chunk of the holidays reading it to each other in tears.
