REAL LIFE: 2, SATIRE: 0

Big news yesterday was that this very funny Onion article, originally published in February of 2004, has now become a perplexing and head-shakingly unnecessary - though not very funny - reality.

Big news today is that a very funny and as-yet unwritten (though surely easily imagined) Onion article (actually, this one comes pretty close), has now become a perplexing, head-shakingly homoerotic, and confusingly misguided attempt at *ahem* Catholic rectification - though not very funny - reality. Reminds me of the repeatedly uttered line from John Sayles' estrogen-fest Passion Fish: "I didn't ask for the anal probe."

I didn't ask for the Catholic Probe!
I didn't ask for the Catholic Probe!
(whispering, shivering) I didn't ask for the... catholic... probe...
(in Kennedy voice) I didn't ask for the Catholic Probe.
I didn't ask for the Catholic Probe?
I didn't ask for the Catholic probe.
I didn't ask for the Catholic probe.

You can see where I'm going with this!

It would have been funnier to run a picture of Bernard Law with the caption, "Yeah, we were dirty. We were dirty..."

Maybe I will, ass-head.

By the way, Vince McMahon called. He wants his ability to receive light-hearted critiques back.
