What began as a smart aleck college paper has blossomed into one of the country's most respected printed journals, humor or otherwise, with a weekly circulation of 233,000. It's said even Bill Clinton made time to read The Onion during his term, and why wouldn't he with headlines like "Starbucks to Begin Sinister Phase 2 of Operation," "Lab Rabbit Strongly Recommends Cover Girl Waterproof Mascara for Sensitive Eyes" and "Fununs Still Outselling Responsibilityuns."
Two books, a few television deals and some movies options later, the staff of The Onion continues doing what it does best, crafting attention-grabbing headlines with slyly humorous stories to match.
