The newspaper has a readership of over a million, and it reaches millions more with its spin-off books and The Onion News Network. The Onion has shown us that standard ways of thinking about the news have their grotesque and silly side, and this invites philosophical examination. Twenty-one philosophers were commissioned to figure out just what makes the Onion so truthful and insightful. Are the Onion writers truly cynical, or just cynically faking it? Does the Onion really have a serious point of view on religion? On sex? On politics? Who cares what Area Man thinks? If everyone’s so dumb, how come so many Onion readers keep on laughing at how dumb they are?...

    Area Reader Pissed-Off By Pseudo-Openminded Snobs Who Think They're Funny

    This could've been so flipping cool, but as far as I'm concerned, it tanked. I love how the Onion is that it is playful but usually on-point when it comes to cultural nonsense. I thought this project would do the same for pop philosophy. And it had a few moments like that. But the further I read, the more it grew into a direct, asshole-ish, and FLAT tease of Theistic-minded people in general, interspersed with bouts of bewilderingly pointless crudeness. I'm choosing to believe this isn't what's actually in the background of all of the background of all of The Onion's great content. I'm sticking with the blog for now!

    Some chapters are way better than others.

    Ups and downs, some chapters are interesting, give you some food for thought, others are rather shallow but funny and a few are rather forgettable. My balance is positive, good book unless you are a conservative and religious person, in which case you'll feel pissed.
