I love everything about The Onion, and every week it’s a reliable source of laughter and appreciation of the finer tunings of nerd humor. But this week’s might be one of my all time favorites: Oprah Launches Own Reality. I appreciate the piece not only for its handling of the sense of impending doom that everything will be owned by Oprah some day (and really, I do admire her accomplishments, and I have been known to tune in if Lionel Richie’s going to be on, but you know, I can figure out what I like on my own, including my presidential candidates, thanks), and the sense that maybe she has a bit of a savior complex (see also, Oprah Stuns Audience with Man Giveaway)– but there’s also their keen capture of some of the finer points of astrophysics and the time/space complex. I mean, the pop-out physics explanation of the way the new Oprahverse works is worth its weight in gold. Or unstable isotopes. Whatever. And, I wish that I could do High Sarcasm nearly as well. Writer’s envy, really.
