Why do foreigners inexplicably hate us?  It’s not like they aren’t popping out more kids all the time. What’s a few dead ones?  The real crime here is failure to export birth control.  Arrest the Pope!

Update:  For those not getting it, yes: I know the first link is the Onion.  That’s the point.  Because the second link is *not* the Onion.

    Uhhhhh … Mark, as the previous comment noted – you did see that this was in “The Onion” and was sarcasm?

    • Mark Shea

      Yes. Did you see the second link, which was a real news story? Life imitates satire. That’s why the satire is so bitterly funny.

    The second link is a real story — Daily Mail. This is a rare instance when real news and The Onion merge into one.
