Of course, the Onion is a satirical newspaper (founded in my hometown, I am proud to say). The video version, which you can find onRoku as a channel, is a great way to spend some downtime. Yet, every now and then, they hit one out of the park.
Video: In The Know: Should The Nation’s Unemployed Be Buying New Apple Computers?
In this video, they have a panel of hosts talk about why unemployed people should buy a Macbook. One panel member asks why they shouldn’t get a least expensive computer. Another suggests they should just use the computer they have already.
The ending is pretty surprising and a little emotional. That makes this video all the more funnier. So sit back and enjoy this great video.
I talked about the Onion in 2009 when a Bangledesh news source used the Onion to get their news.
