Fake news juggernaut The Onion turned 25 yesterday. It was 1988 when two college students started the publication as a print newspaper. Now, The Onion is now a comedic institution, boasting a website with multiple sections, various TV projects, several books, the Onion News Network, and various other web videos. Two and a half decades after its inception, The Onion is sharp as ever and a home to some of the sharpest comedy writers around.
