America's Finest News Source Praise for Our Dumb Century, the history of the twentieth century as seen by The Onion: 'In a different league... the work that redefines the century. This must be the funniest, wisest book ever written.' - Steve Jelbert The Times 'The Onion headlines are works of comic genius, as compressed and compelling as haiku.... For years, heavyweight novelists have been struggling to come up with the Great American Novel. Have they just been overtaken by a team of jokers?' - Craig Brown Mail on Sunday 'I cannot imagine a funnier book being written - well, ever.' - Nicholas Lezard Guardian Praise for The Onion: 'This publication is tasteless and destructive to our shared values. Read it for yourself and you'll see what I mean. Seriously, what else could make me laugh - much less laugh uproariously - while being offended week after week after week? - Al Gore The funniest publication in the United States.' The New Yorker 'Outside of maybe Dario Fo, an Italian who few are sure exists, the Onion people make the most consistently perfect and excoriating social commentary we currently have. But will those Nobel bastards honor them too? Only God, our merciles and just God, knows.' - Dave Eggers
