Slapstick

What’s the deal with this steady stream of Onion pieces about the president getting maimed in increasingly outlandish and horrific ways? They started off kind of funny, but then they quickly became weird and ghoulish. Now they’re getting so implausible that they’re starting to get kind of funny again. But there’s something unsettling about a comedy website describing the president of the United States being afflicted with all kinds of excruciating pain when that’s the whole joke.

On the other hand, this was hilarious.
