I love the Onion! If you are not familiar with the Onion, they are spoof and parody par excellence! Most of their “productions,” however, I would not let children watch without previewing first. This one is “safe” although young children won’t “get it,” and elementary kids might think it’s “real” (so now you can talk about what a parody is).

So this one is for you! It’s your laugh for the day! But Beverage Hazard Alert: Put it down while viewing. (You’ve been warned!)
