The Onion
Our Dumb Century
1999

Subtitled "100 Years of Headlines from America's Finest News Source," Our Dumb Century is an absurdly detailed trip through the 1900s, as interpreted by the masters of satire at The Onion. While some might claim that the book's humor is primarily derived from its amusing use of profanity ("Holy Shit, Man Walks on Fucking Moon"), its true appeal comes from the editors' deep knowledge of U.S. history and their willingness to skewer it mercilessly. If you're not careful, you might just learn something from this book, but you'll probably be too busy laughing your guts out. (TR)
