Monday! It's Snowing!

There were some little flurries over the weekend, but what's outside my window is actually snow, the sort that sticks on the ground and gladdens the hearts of cardigan corgis.

For your early weekday reading, here's some PARODY news from the Onion (I emphasize the parody part on account of it's happened that people occasionally think the Onion's for real, which of course it is, but only in a slightly alternate universe):

WASHINGTON—In a landmark decision Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court narrowly ruled to uphold the Bill of Rights, the very tenets upon which American society is based. "After carefully considering the relevance of the 10 inviolable rights that comprise the ideological foundation on which our nation is built, the court finds that these basic freedoms remain important for the time being, and should not be overturned," read the majority opinion authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who cast the tie-breaking vote. "Until such time as it can be definitively proven that citizens no longer require the protections provided by the Bill of Rights, it shall remain the principal legal guidance for the United States of America." The Supreme Court's latest decision comes on the heels of last month's 6-3 ruling to abolish the pursuit of happiness from the three inalienable rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence.

Heh heh heh.

Heh heh he. That China story is nothing. An anti-Harry Potter group once mistakenly used an Onion story as evidence of satanic influence from the books because a kid "interviewed" in the story said that "[she couldn't] wait to grow up and practice necromancy." : ]]]
