Talking U.S. Citizen Resigns After Making Controversial Remark About Country

I haven't checked out this site in years.
Man, these folk are creative. This stuff reads like real news.

U.S. Citizen Resigns After Making Controversial Remark About Country
Quote:
MATTOON, IL—Ending the firestorm of controversy that erupted after he made a highly critical comment about the United States, 43-year-old hardware store employee Keith Nellson bowed to public pressure Wednesday and announced he would be stepping down as an American citizen, effective immediately.
Quote:
"First of all, I would like to offer my deepest apologies to anyone I may have hurt with my comments," said Nellson, flanked by his wife and two children, who have supported him throughout the ordeal. "While I truly love America, I believe the best thing I can do right now—for my family and for my nation—is to resign as U.S. citizen. After the distraction of these past few weeks, I hope my decision will allow the United States to resume its pursuit of all the things that make it the best country in the world."

If I remember correctly, The Onion is a parody site.

Yup. Your memory isn't gone. Yet.
I love well done parodies.

I believe that is the main reason I stopped visiting it.
You still have to be careful as to what you look at. My brief visit earlier indicated that the headlines tend to give an indication as to the content.
