This weeks "Onion Dome"
« on: January 31, 2004, 12:03:21 AM »
Just wanted to remind people to check the "Onion Dome".  This weeks are particularly good with three articles, particularly

"IOC Announces New Games for Athens Olympics"

and one about an "ethnic" festival in middle America.

Ebor,

How is this week's Onion Dome any different from previous issues to label it 'heretical'?

??? ??? ???

I said it is "hysterical" as in it had us laughing out loud.  "Is hysterical"  like Father Vassily's "Is Outrage!"

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

Please forgive!  I could swear it looked like 'heretical', not 'hysterical', to me.  I've been a bit under the weather recently and still not running at 100%.  :-[

I confess that you had me wondering if I'd lost my ability to spell. :)

Besides,  it would be frightfully cheeky of me (Anglican, no doubt a heretic as I deny that I'm graceless ;D ;D) to say that the Onion Dome was heretical.  I enjoy it immensely and always check there on Friday mornings as a perk-up to a long week.  

I think in the "EO Olympics" that the Anglicans could give them a run for their money in precision processing and the High Note Event.... after all, there are all those Boy Choirs... they soar over everyone in range :D

The "Ethnic" festival article has a flavour of "Lake Woebegone" to it... it must be the hot dish and gelatine.

I hope that your're not seriously unwell, btw.
