The future is a barren world

The Onion has been something less than hilarious for quite a while now; they peaked, I think, with the lovingly-rendered Our Dumb Century, a collection of mocked-up front pages from a very slightly skewed version of the 20th century, done with substantially more finesse than their more recent and clunky attempts at po-mo irony. This week's issue, though - I think that's not only jumping the shark, but imploding into infinitely dense and unfunny hack-work halfway across the tank. (Warning: annoying, musical Flash interface.)
