The Onion, well-known for creating high-quality spoofs of the media, today released a new feature aimed squarely at the very popular TED Talks.

Called “Onion Talks”, the new series will run every Wednesday as part of the satirical newspaper’s content partnership with YouTube.

According to the New Yorker, Sam West, the head writer of the Onion Talks series, imagined it would be just like TED, “only instead of a good idea, it will be a ludicrous one.” At first, he said, “We actually reached out to TED to see if they were interested in collaborating with us. But when they saw what we were up to, they didn’t really think it was an idea worth spreading.”

The first idea kicking off Onion Talks? Compost-fueled cars that can then be composted.

“Behind every great achievement, is a visionary,” the speaker says. “I’ll be your visionary, and you do the things I come up with.”
