Book Review: The Onion Presents: Christmas Exposed

HumorousHolidaysBadge

Read Part 1 of my Humorous Holiday Season Book Reviews here

Well, here we are at the end of my two part series of humorous holiday book reviews, and we’re going out with a bang because part 2 is better than one!

The Onion Presents: Christmas Exposed is a collection of articles, infographics, and the like from the annals of The Onion’s many absurd satirical pieces of work. Because this is a collection of writings and graphics, I can’t review it in a typical way, so I wanted to share some of my favorite parts.

On page 30 and 31, The Onion writers shared some great Winterizing Tips:

Use phrases like “I love you” and “You are special to me” to create warm feelings in the home.

If flying above the Andes Mountains this winter, bring along plenty of extra Paraguayan soccer players.

In Out-of-Control Revelers Deck Shit Out of Area Halls (page 65), fictional Millicent Slopes had me rolling with laughter when she was quoted as saying, “Look at my halls. I can barely squeeze through there. Such was the force and vigor of their decking.”

Overall, this was a funny, quick read. Readers and lovers of The Onion will really enjoy this holiday collection. As always with The Onion, please keep in mind that it’s not real. 😉
