Nope, not the Onion itself, but rather a different satirical/parody news article.

Really Henry, it's bad enough you don't read the links other people provide for those times when you are factually incorrect....but you really should try reading the links you provide for others to read.

Is it's a joke, I don't get it.

He started the thread with an actual headline that sounds like it should be in the Onion, but was actually from a legit news source. His next post was a headline from a satirical column.

Where is the funny?

Look under the couch cushions.

Really, check there. It's important.

Checked under the couch and found a whole lot more funny there than in Mr. V's latest post in this thread.

Woman suing 12-year-old nephew over exuberant hug

A woman who claims an exuberant hug from her nephew broke her wrist, turning her life upside down, is seeking $127,000 in damages from the boy, according to news outlets.

Connell claims the boy acted unreasonably by jumping into her arms, causing her to fall and break her wrist.

He was eight-years-old at the time.

Now comes the good part:
Connell complained in court that life has been "very difficult" for her, saying she had trouble holding an hors d’oeuvre plate at a party...

Well shit, she can't hold a damn hors d’oeuvre plate at a party anymore, and she's only asking for $127k??? That's gotta be worth at least a couple mil.

She lost


Hope it was worth losing the affection of her nephew who based on her claims, really loved her. Anyone else think that there is more to the story than an injury that occurred 4 years ago?

Maybe we're 11th? Need Neade to draw a beade on some guilt so we don't grow complacent in our aged entitled whiteness in this hipster clueless burg. With incompetent traffic engineers, not that we can drive anyway.
