I love that episode of ONION, so friggin true, yet because it's in the form of satire, people won't take it seriously. They laugh and blow it off, or they don't laugh cause they don't get it. I believe it IS exactly what Onion makes fun of it being. It makes too much sense; it fits the scenario. And hey, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck.
