This used to hang on the wall of my office at Newsweek, gifted to me by a coworker who knew how much I loved Kool-Aid man jokes. For some reason, I thought of the Jonestown story today (“Enormous Pitcher-Shaped Hole Found in Jungle Commune’s Wall,” hahaha.) But looking at it again years later, every single joke on this page is solid—from the Pina Colada at the top to the Robin Williams one below. (“Congress was first advised of a possible Williams hair risk by the US Forestry Service in February…”) Perfection. ( See it larger via The Onion)

“We’re guessing that by the time her boyfriend found her, she had been inhaling cocoa butter and eucalyptus fumes for over 45 minutes,” Jones continued. “One more Buf-Puf of jasmine serum and it would have been too late.”

Paul Giamatti landed a new FX pilot today, which gives me the excuse to publish one of my all time favorite headlines from The Onion: "Exhausted Paul Giamatti to Paul Giamatti From Home Today."
I have no idea why I think it is so hilarious, but two years later, I still cannot look at the headline and the photo without laughing. The fun fact is that Giamatti actually lives near me in Brooklyn, and I once saw him on the street and laughed at him because I instantly thought of this headline. I am sure he thought I was a crazy person, but it would have been too complicated to say, “It’s not you, Paul Giamatti. It’s that Onion headline!” Ah, neighborly regrets.
