Onion still does some funny jokes. the problem is the ones getting shared traffic in the same fearmongering the MSM uses as propoganda. like this pro-censorship shit:


some funny ones that go under the radar:

The onion is just so bitter. This isn’t a joke, it’s just a left wing person hating the world. How in the world does anyone even halfway decent think something like this is funny or appropriate to publish as humor.
I think it's a Nazi joke. Joseph Goebbel's kids were poisoned by their parents at the end of WW2, as the Soviets closed in:
 
Fitting.

It's a Downfall reference, I think.

First Onion article I've laughed at in a good long while:

PIERRE, SD—In an effort to attract visitors to a state that is home to some of the worst Covid-19 infection rates in the world, South Dakota officials launched a new tourism initiative Friday that will be centered around the slogan “Come Die Here.” “For years, people have flocked here to see Mount Rushmore, but now South Dakota is also a great place to just come and die,” said Gov. Kristi Noem in a prepared statement, which touted the dwindling availability of ICU beds, lack of a statewide mask mandate, and opportunity to take one’s last, fluid-filled breaths amidst the scenic backdrop of Badlands National Park. “What could be better than perishing while surrounded by the gorgeous Black Hills after enjoying a scrumptious last meal of chislic or bison burgers? Wild Bill Hickok went down in South Dakota, and now it’s easier than ever for you and your loved ones to do the same!” At press time, reports confirmed North Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska had all sought to compete with South Dakota by launching their own similar campaigns.

For those unaware, South Dakota is home to such notable ad campaigns as:
- Meth, We're On It!
- Don't Jerk and Drive!
- Why Die on Mars When You Can Live in South Dakota!

The onion refusing to go after the insanity of the left killed it for me. They did briefly with resistance hole, but after that shut down it's been pandering and weak
