The Onion has had a couple coaster-themed articles lately.
Ways to increase theme park attendance.
The pope visits Six Flags.
"If you are a child over 54 inches tall, your covenant with fun compels you to check out Batman the Ride."

I love that the names and ride descriptions in the pope article are more accurate than most mainstream news articles. The only "error" I noticed was the picture of Titan labeled "XCalibur," but that caption was also my favorite part of the article, so I'll let it slide. :)
I love the Onion. The one thing I'll miss about living in this city is being able to pick up a printed copy wherever I go.

Geez, the Onion really has gone downhill in the past few years. I found the pope story amusing but the ways to increase park attendance was just...blah. Not even chuckle worthy.
Oh well good find none-the-less. ;)

I am crying from that pope article. I love the Onion and wish I could get it here in Columbus.
2 of my all-time favorites-
"U.S. Military to Close Camp Snoopy"
"Starbucks to Build New Location in Bathroom of Starbucks"
