Headlines We’d See if The Onion Did a South Jersey Edition
If you haven't heard of it before, The Onion is a popular fake news site. Actually, it was fake news before fake news was cool.
The Onion began as a print publication back in the 1980s, but when the internet started to roll, they rolled with it, online.
According to Wikipedia,
"The Onion's articles cover current events, both real and fictional, parodying the tone and format of traditional news organizations with stories, editorials, and man-on-the-street interviews using a traditional news website layout and an editorial voice modeled after that of the Associated Press. The publication's humor often depends on presenting mundane, everyday events as newsworthy, surreal, or alarming...."
So, we got to thinking, what kind of headlines would we see if they did a special South Jersey edition. So, what follows are "actual fake headlines."
