Crabs, Robots

I don’t know if other ‘thonners ever follow the Onion News Network (The Onion’s recently-added video component), but it’s really surprisingly good. I’d stayed away from it for a long time, expecting “Mad TV”-style broad parody, but the style and precision (and the incredible detail) of the stuff is really amazing.

Anyway these two recent “news items” have a horror/sci-fi bent, so I thought you guys would enjoy them. As with all ONN items, you can freeze-frame on the embedded press clippings and totally read them.
