The Onion Has Its Moments

This just about killed me.

SON ATTEMPTS TO CULTIVATE PARENTS' INTEREST IN BETTER MOVIES
DOVER, DEā€”Marc Morehouse, 24, made another vain attempt to improve his parents' taste in movies Monday by taking them to see Sideways. "I know you guys thought Meet The Fockers sounded really funny, but maybe we should all give something a little different a try," Morehouse said to his parents Kirk and Doris as he bought three tickets at an area cineplex. "Dad, you like golf, right? And Mom drinks wine, so this movie is right up your alley. It'll be fun." After the show, Morehouse could not convince his parents to have dinner at a non-chain restaurant.

(Hi Mom, Dad, all in good fun.) Well of course Moon has parents.

The Onion is great. That article is so true. I did actually try to get my parents to see Sideways. Didn't work out...

You may be amused to hear that I (Nancy) spent Christmas afternoon in Toledo watching "Meet the Fockers" with my entire family.
