You Can't Make This Up

Fans of The Onion,  like me, know the headlines on the fake, satirical news site are classic.

But sometimes, real news trumps The Onion. Somebody created a Tumblr site called Onionlike which gives us real headlines that are from real news and real publications. The headlines prove that truth is stranger than fiction.

Some of the headlines from Onionlike include "Alton Attorney Accidentally Sues Himself," and "Academic: Are the Smurfs Crypto Fascists?" What the hell is a crypto-fascist anyway? Are blue things crypto-fascists?

One more headline says "Headless, Clawless Bear Found in N.Y. Trash Bin." Makes me think of that famous headline, wish I remember if it was from the New York Post or the New York Daily News. That classic headline was "Headless Body Found in Topless Bar."

Well, of course.
