Reality Check

So, most mornings I start the day by listening to NPR while I make breakfast. Then, to avoid doing my work, I'll often surf for news. First, real news (NYT, BBC, etc.). Then, fake news at The Onion. In recent months, The Onion has started running ads that are basically headline links for various real or realish news outlets. The headlines almost inevitably strike me as hilarious.

Does this happen to other people? Is it just because being at The Onion site predisposes me to finding real news funny? Or is it that all news coverage (if not the news) is pretty ridiculous and only morning grogginess and long years of being oh-so serious have prevented me from noticing?
