:smack: I have no words.
I thought I remembered Ann Landers or Dear Abby falling for an Onion article years back, address how the Harry Potter novels were inducting America’s children into Satanism at astonishing rates and how you as parents can keep your loved ones off this slippery slope. (I thought I remembered it, but I can’t seem to google it now. The usually helpful Snopes does nothing. Perhaps I’ve been whooshed by a Snopes article about people getting whooshed by an Onion article?)
What other instances have you seen, of people falling for articles from the Onion?
