The Onion has created yet another classic news article surrounding Al Gore. Previously, it was “Al Gore Caught Warming Globe To Increase Box Office Profits” and “Critics Blast Al Gore’s Documentary As ‘Realistic‘”. Now, we’ve been given the hilarious “Al Gore Places Infant Son In Rocket To Escape Dying Planet.”

Where to begin? I won’t even bother — jump on over the article itself. Here’s a brief highlight:

“As the rocket soared through the Gore estate’s retractable solar-paneled roof—installed three years ago to save energy and provide emergency rocket-launch capability in the event that Gore’s campaign to save Earth was unsuccessful—the onetime presidential candidate and his wife, Tipper, stood arm-in-arm, nobly facing their end while gazing up in stoic dignity at the receding rocket, the ecosystem already beginning to collapse around them.”

Go! Laugh! Be Merry! And all praise Kal-Al!
