The Onion Is A Priceless National Treasure

by Tom Bozzo

This week's Infographic.

Transliteration from Pharyngula:
A debate has arisen over a Pennsylvania school board's decision to teach both intelligent design and evolution in the classroom. Here are some highlights from the trial.
  • Defense asks that scientific facts be stricken from the record
  • Beautiful painting of God creating universe with anvil and hammer admitted as evidence
  • Defense appeals to jury's reason, fairness, and fear of eternal damnation
  • Final deliberations interrupted twice by mailmen, first bearing kids' letters to Jesus, then bearing kids' letters to Darwin
  • Monkey called as witness fails to identify anyone in courtroom as his descendant
  • Darwin found guilty on all charges
  • It is proven that this country is going to hell, but not for the reasons the intelligent design supporters think
That may be the most wonderful Onion piece I've ever seen.
Drek, this one is a classic.

I will always have a place in my heart, though, for their immortal 2001 inauguration headline, "Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over.'"
