Scott's Review:
3.5 out of 5 stars on December 16, 1999

Who else could chronicle history better than The Onion?

This is a book of the cover pages from "The Onion" for the last hundred years, up to and including January 2000 (never mind it was published in April of 1999). The Onion's take on history is quite humorous, and some of the headlines are indeed hilarious. Though, in my opinion, a large part of The Onion's humor comes from the fact it's so topical. Many of the headlines in this book aren't that humorous to me, though I suspect the older you are, the more of these will be humorous. All in all, it's a fun book, but perhaps only the soft cover is worth the price.
