‘The Onion,’ ‘The A.V. Club,’ and ‘Clickhole’ Are Prepping for a Sale

By

Funny or Die isn’t the only comedy site considering a big sale this week. Bloomberg reports today that Onion Inc. – owner of pop culture and satirical sites The Onion, The A.V. Club, and Clickhole – has also hired a financial advisor for a possible sale of the company. Onion’s CEO Steve Hannah declined to comment on the news, but the company is reportedly working with an investment bank to look into their options. Like Funny or Die, it’s unclear how a sale would affect Onion Inc’s sites. Hopefully The Onion’s news item about God’s plans to kick off humanity’s mass extinction next week isn’t more prophetic than satirical.
