Prompt 7 – I Swear I’m Not Crying, It’s Just The Onion


The Onion runs an entertainment website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news.

For the blog this week (for class April 6), choose a topic and craft a satirical news piece, complete with a clever title and any media content or images to make it believable.

Get creative and have fun!

Here are a few articles from The Onion for inspiration (feel free to peruse the site for other ideas):
