    I'm a regular reader of the Onion, and I tell ya, that's a little bit much. Now, if both his parents hadn't just got sick, then joking about something like "hamstring cancer" would be hilarious, but come on guys, wrong time, wrong place.

    I'm about speechless. That's beyond low. Disgusting. I better stop before I write something I shouldn't.

    I'd have to echo some sentiments here. I generally find the Onion funny, but I really don't see anything in the article I could catergorize as funny or clever, just dumb and inappropriate.

    It's doubly bad: not only insulting, but not even humorous. If you're going to go all the way with a comic schtick, make it funny. Instead, it's just dumb.

    It's satirical news site. It's usually chuckle inducing at the least, but I see no reason to read it ever again.

    That's just plain disturbing. Those writers have serious issues if they find that funny.

    I never heard of The Onion until now, this is pathetic. These people should get off their butts and make a real living. Guess I'm getting old. This is one of the most pitiful things I have seen for quite a while.

    I'm offended that they produced such an unfunny article. I think you can joke about anything as long as you do it well, but this article is probably the weakest writing I've ever seen in the Onion.

    So you're saying that the topic of the piece was fine, but the writing was poor.

    Wow.

    I'm saying that the whole thing was very badly done. It's possible to make light of any situation if you do it correctly, with the appropriate sensitivity and a delicate touch, but these guys failed miserably.
