Historical Hysteria

Here again are the links I have posted to funny history-related news stories from The Onion, the Internet’s most famous source for satire.  Like Scott Ott (“Scrappleface”), The Onion does such a good job that you wish their stories were real.  Here are those links again:

Another great satirist is Andy Borowitz. Here’s a history-related story from him:
