Satire, that is. Though it may be on life support.
I was literally laughing out loud at lunch today when reading The Onion‘s piece, “U.S. Counter-Counterterrorism Unit Successfully Destroys Washington Monument”. The point where I lost it:
“After taking control of the area (around the base of the Washington Monument), Payton tested his counterterrorism adversaries by demanding the release of all Guantanamo Bay detainees. When U.S. hostage negotiators said they would “see what they could do,” they were shot dead by accompanying CCU agents for breaking a strict DHS policy against negotiating with terrorists.”
