So apparently the otherwise respected and respectful "The Onion" has received a small bit of criticism for its depiction of a plane flying into the Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, with the caption, "Sears Extremists Fly Plane Into Willis Tower."
Too soon? Tasteless? Not exactly uncharacteristic for The Onion. I mean, really, The Onion wouldn't be The Onion if they showed much restraint and it's been 11 years, which is quite a bit of restraint for them.
So, what are your favorite tasteless Onion headlines? Here are some that stood out for me:
Jenna Bush’s Federally Protected Wetlands Now Open for Public Drilling (during Bush's ANWR drilling controversy).
German Jews Concerned about Hitler’s ‘Kill All Jews’ Proposal
Anna Nicole Smith Finally Reaches Target Weight (with a picture of Anna Nicole Smith and a picture of a grave. Published about a month after her death in 2007).
