Life immitates The Onion


Posted February 15, 2006 - By CySurflex Steinitz

If you are a fan of The Onion like I am, then you read their article from exactly one year ago titled "Fuck Everything, We're Doing Five Blades". The article mocked the razor blade wars between Schick and Gillette. Gillette came out with the Mach 3, the revolutionary razor with 3 blades - only to be outdone by Schick Razors who came out with the Quatro - with 4 blades.

Last week I almost spit out my breakfast cheerios when I read that Gillette is in fact release a 5 razor blade model, dubbed the Fusion. The Onions self proclaimed motto of "Americas Finest News Source" might not be that far off after all!

This is not the first time The Onion has crossed over into the realms of reality. Last year a major Beijing daily newspaper cited an Onion article stating that the White House was threatening to move away from Washington just like a sports team would. In another similar case, a local Sheriff was caught off guar by an Onion story regarding al-Qaida doing telemarketing calls to sell vacation homes.

Also last year, the White House actually sued The Onion to stop it from using the presidential seal.
