This is not a fake: Lt. Governor to declare July 31 "The Onion Day"

July 25, 2012

The Chicago Tribune reports today that Lt. Governor Sheila Simon is so delighted the satirical newspaper, The Onion, is moving its headquarters to Chicago and bringing 100 jobs to boot, that not only has she declared July 31st “The Onion Day,” but she also will sing and play the banjo performing a piece written in honor of the event.

(Um, no, seriously, this is for real. Yes, I know it’s a story about The Onion, and, yes, I know what they’re all about at that outfit, but hey, I saw this in the Trib for goodness sake, so it’s got to be the real McCoy.)
