Basically, "How to use your iphone as a contraceptive."

Was that supposed to be funny?

Kinda disappointed. Wasn't funny, wasn't dirty. Just kinda missed the mark, imho.

It's not easy being the Onion or using humor effectively for a broad audience. Not sure I'd come here for my daily laugh, anyway.

You're very forgiving. I found this painful . . .



And in case it disappears, which I think it might when the author sobers up:

It wasn't funny to me, at all.

The Onion doesn't always hit it out of the park but even if I don't laugh, I can find cleverness in the content.

Not so with this. The author tried way too hard, and was neither insightful or clever.

So color me disappointed as well.

Oh and the Onions Radio News always gets a smile out of me, at the very least.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Actually, space-time nailed it-- it was not funny on its own but had a sliver of cleverness perceived only by the reader who knew the aspirin joke (which I now vaguely recall)-- "oh, ha ha, they changed the aspirin to an iPod."
To the other 90% of readers . . . bleh.
