Ask The Onion
There was a time when some of my friends and I would email each other links to stories on The Onion fairly regularly. That doesn't happen so much anymore but there's no doubting they're still spot on funny most of the time.
And, apparently also quite prescient. This from May of 1993:
Yes, that's them making fun of a 'regular' guy from Ohio -- "Roy The Forklift Driver" -- talking to the country and Rush Limbaugh as some type of political savior. Which was funny then, and even funnier now that John McCain has chosen to hang his hat on Joe The Plumber (who stood McCain up this morning on the stump).
(By the way, it's entirely possible that this is a joke on people like me by the Onion and this was created earlier this week. In which case it's just as funny, if not more so.)
