These People Honestly Think "The Onion" Is Real and They're APPALLED. It’s Hilarious... | 22 Words

One of the best things about satire is watching other people not get it. It feels good to laugh at satire, but it feels even better to laugh at people who aren't laughing at it. (Sure, that's kind of pretentious. It's OK, though.)

And when it comes to satire, there really isn't a source more renowned than The Onion. But while they may be the most famous satirical publication on the planet, that doesn't mean everyone knows they're joking. In fact, there are thousands out there who see their headlines every day and believe them to be real.

Which is nothing short of awesome for the rest of us.

And thanks to the site Literally Unbelievable, we get to check in from time to time and laugh at these people.
