This fake headline/story is from The Onion.
We are big fans of The Onion.
If the Arctic Monkeys are the official house band of “NotMakingThisUp,” and the New York Post is the newspaper of record, then The Onion would be our alter ego.
But what is scary about this fake headline is that, somehow, it is deemed funnier and more pertinent than “Ahmadinejad Feeling Like Trip to the US to start World War III Went Pretty Well.”
What would The Onion make of Kristallnacht?
Netanyahu Feeling Like Trip To US To Start World War III Went Pretty Well
NEW YORK—Following his speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Friday that he is “pretty satisfied” with his trip to the U.S. to instigate World War III. “All in all, I think I accomplished my goal of pushing humanity toward the brink of complete and utter annihilation,” said Netanyahu, adding that his implicit calls for international military action against Iran, which would ultimately escalate the conflict to an Armageddon-level of death and destruction, went “fairly well.” “I think I did a good job laying the groundwork for a nuclear holocaust that will kill billions of people and eventually end the world as we know it. Sounded like everyone really liked it, too.” When reached for comment, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told reporters that he was “equally happy” with his own efforts to nudge the world slightly closer to a full-blown apocalypse.
