You may have been hearing a lot recently how we’ve discovered vast, vast amounts of cheap, clean natural gas that will free us from our energy bondage. Sounds good, right? But one thing the politicians and the big energy companies don’t like to discuss too much is how we actually get the gas. Through fracking.
But don’t worry about that either. The satire reporters at the The Onion–who’s message just happens to be sponsored by imaginary SkyEnergyCo–explain that fracking is just like slurping up a milk shake on a hot sunny day. That chocolately goodness just wants to be in your tummy.
So don’t worry about all that scary fracking stuff, because here’s some pictures of bunnies or ponies. Don’t heed the advice of the farmers and rednecks, who know the land better than most, and know that their well water wasn’t flammable before they started fracking.

A Toyota Prius maybe the most fuel efficient car on the road, but it comes at a cost. Other drivers are ‘driven up the wall’ by Prius owners’ obnoxious, smug attitude that they are so much better than everyone else because they ‘care about Mother Nature’ so much.
Luckily, mock cable news channel The Onion brings us this report of the latest Prius model. Appropriately named the ‘Prius Solution,’ the self-touting greenest car ever actually kills the driver, thus ending their carbon foot print forever.
As the obligatorly British narrator says, “When you’re dead, you can’t pollute.”
By now, most people have received at least one Facebook or Twitter message from an aquantence concerning their new KickStarter project.
But be warned, there’s a new report out that nearly all projects on the fundraising site are just a scam for useless crap. One cyber security expert has even said these KickStarter scammers are, “not as bad as child molesters, but they’re close.”
Of course, this is a satirical segment from the faux news channel The Onion, but it just mirrors reality so well.
With today’s 24 hour cable news cycle, the news has evolved into a monster unrecognizable to the respected establishment it once was just a few decades ago. Today, news stories resemble action movies more than actual journalism.
Faux cable news channel The Onion takes a jab at the media establishment that often focuses more on the excitement of the story than the actual content in this breaking ‘news story’ that is so new, the reporter doesn’t even have any information yet.
