From the Publisher:
The staff of
In this collection of mock newspaper articles, editors from The Onion satirize 20th century-America by reporting on events--real, imagined, or exaggerated--that shaped the nation's consciousness. With catchy headlines and journalistic-style articles that spotlight overt racism, sexism, xenophobia, and general ignorance, the articles encapsulate the hypocrisy and absurdity of major events, advertising, and pop culture. Photos throughout.
Customer Reviews of Our Dumb Century
excellent casual reading6/11/1999
This is an excellent book if you are NOT in the mood of reading something from cover to cover but just want to read bits and pieces each time. Hilarious, sarcastic and brilliant - but will only make sense if you have a good grasp of 1) popular culture AND 2) major historical events in history (20th century).
the funniest newspaper articles ever written! buy this and keep on shelf next to can. you will never come out, and your legs will permanently numb-up.
This is one of the funniest books I have read in AGES.
