Jeans Unwashed for 11 Months Develop Ability To Recognize Self In Mirror: Onion Homework

The best homework since Pirate Swashbuckling School is from the Writing for The Onion class at The Second City‘s training center.

A bit of background: in an ongoing quest to find my voice, I’m now studying comedy writing at The Second City’s training program. For class last night, I had to turn in 10 Onion-worthy headlines. Here are the best 25 I came up with. Any favorites? Can you guess which ones the class and teacher liked the best?
