Those pranksters at The Onion are poking fun of recent news stories that the newspaper is for sale. Today the satirical humor publication's Web page is reporting that it has been sold to Yu Wan Mei Amalgamated Salvage Fisheries and Polymer Injection Corp. Not only did The Onion staffers go through the trouble to create a Web page for the pretend new owners, they also wrote a funny story about the popularity of Yu Wan Mei products in the United States.
"For years I have enjoyed quality plastic containers made by Yu Wan Mei's excellent polymer injection facilities," said Ben John Son, a worker. "But until now, its fragrant fish by-products have not been available for purchase here in Midwestern America. Lucky for me, revolutionary new mass-production capabilities have allowed Yu Wan Mei to expand its sales territory to include Utah, where I reside!"Reminds me of the half-dozen emails I get from Chinese toolmakers every morning.
