Link: The Onion writers

If you find The Onion as screen-splatteringly funny as I do, you’ll want to check out this podcast of how they do it.

Turns out they write about 600 headlines a week, then battle in the writers’ room for which ones go in. There’s a whole lot of of intellectualising goes on, and while part of me thinks they’re over-analysing and should just get on with it, I guess that’s what you gotta do to create a long running, consistently hilarious paper / website.
