Society has evolved past the need of "the Onion" and similar satirical outlets

In 30 years I live here, I heard "frociaggine" for the first time this week and from the pope 馃拃

it's such an underground word that it's actually hard to type because the phone corrector doesn't know it and changes it to unrelated stuff

Like that time when the people from South Park decided not to use Donald Trump anymore... because he's funny enough on his own.

The Donald Trump administration is too difficult to satirise because it is funny enough on its own, say Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park.


"It's tricky now because satire has become reality," Parker told 7.30.

"It's really hard to make fun of and in the last season of South Park, which just ended a month-and-a-half ago, we were really trying to make fun of what was going on but we couldn't keep up and what was actually happening was much funnier than anything we could come up with.

"So we decided to kind of back off and let them do their comedy and we'll do ours."

@smiler2012 I'm aware.. but Catholics are hardly the only Christian group that shares similar views. Rather, I'll argue that Evangelicals in the US are even more radical.
