Parody Headlines No Longer Funny 'Cause They're True

Remember back to yesteryear, when parody headlines like these got laughs because they were so preposterous? (from the Onion):

American People Ruled Unfit To Govern - April 15, 1999

Bush "Refuses to Dignify" Mass Murder Allegations - March 9, 2000

Just Six Corporations Remain - June 11, 1998

Fox Reality Show To Determine Ruler Of Iraq - April 23, 2003

More States Shifting Welfare Control to McDonald's - December 10, 1997

'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over' - January 18, 2001

Where'd the funny go?
