Housing Bubble Realtor

Immune-Deficient Realtor Forced To Spend Entire Life In Housing Bubble

If you're not reading the Onion, you're missing out on some of the best, spot-on, satire around.

I remember the first time that I picked up a copy during my freshman year at UW. I had never heard about it and thought it was a real school newspaper. After a few minutes of confusion, I finally got the joke.

Created in 1988 in Madison, WI as a way to sell pizza coupons; The Onion is a free, weekly tabloid-style newspaper filled with hilaious spoof articles. The first half is fictional & the second half is a great entertainment section called the A/V Club.

My friend Nate's (whose blog I featured in this post) younger brother Peter Koechley is a writer and has a blog listing his contributions to each issue.

If you're new to the Onion & like what you see, here's a couple recommendations from Amazon to check out. They make for both great gifts, and great bathroom reading.

and the newest one is available for pre-ordering

One more note. If you buy through these Amazon affiliate links, I'll donate all proceeds to KW Cares.

Hey Dustin, thanks for the reminder.
