WASHINGTON — The Onion has some serious things to say in defense of parody.

 

The satirical site that manages to persuade people to believe the absurd has filed a Supreme Court brief in support of a man who was arrested and prosecuted for making fun of police on social media.

The Onion must have a heck of a lot of off world readers of their satire.

The Onion said it employs 350,000 people, is read by 4.3 trillion people and “has grown into the single most powerful and influential organization in human history.”

Arrested for making fun of police?? Fear not my man, what ever you are going through right now will be more than worth it when you sue them for millions.

Ah, gotcha.  You bolded their funny part and then attempted to make what you thought was a joke.  Jokeception.
