Onion Skin Cream Satire Disturbingly Close to Reality

Sometimes (frequently), when you read the Onion, it is hilarious. Which, like, good. It should be. That's its job.

From the article: "'Anything that makes you upset about your skin, it’ll fix. And it fixes it because the formula in the cream is, um, what word am I looking for? Scientific. It’s a very scientific formula.'"

You can read the whole article here. If you choose not to, I can only assume you live a sad and humorless life.
