The Onion covers mainstream news and has written some excellent high-tech satire over the years including Microsoft Copyrighting Ones and Zeros. (Enter "Microsoft" into the search field on the home page.) The Onion's full time staff publishes a ton of original content on their web site and also publishes a regular newspaper and books. Jim Carrey declines to send up the toonie, Canada’s hilarious two-dollar coin. Leave a comment “If Wall Street was a pig, lots of people couldn’t stomach it – for religious reasons.” — Yasha Harari 10. #OccupyPennState – During the darkest days in Happy Valley. 9. #OccupyItaly – In the end, debt cost more than burlesque on knee for Berlusconi. 8. #OccupyGreece – Because the 99% think forming a plan to save the economy should always lead to firing the Prime Minister who came up with the plan. 7. #OccupySow – Because Sow rhymes with Dow. 6. #OccupyHog – Because the 99% also want motorcycles. 5. #OccupyBoar – It’s what Asterix and Obelix do best, aside from occupying the Roman occupiers. 4. #OccupySwine – It’s what pig farmers do. 3. #OccupyPorker – Because the top 1% hog over half the pork. “If the 99% decided to Occupy Sleep, would there be any dreams left for the top 1%?” — Yasha Harari 10. #OccupyDreams – If we all occupy dreams together, then we can all sleep our way into the top 1%. 9. #OccupyNightmares – It’s the easiest way for 99% of the people to get rid of the top 1% of nightmares. 8. #OccupyDaydreaming – Because paying attention the other 99% of the time isn’t fun. 7. #OccupySleepwalking – Because the top 1% of sleepwalkers can do things you wouldn’t believe, in their sleep. 6. #OccupyVisions – Because the top 1% of psychotropic users control over half the visions. 5. #OccupyLightSleep – Because being alert and staying sharp is the way the top 1% achieve their dreams. 4. #OccupyHeavySleep – It’s very tiring to protest day and night for months on end, so you won’t notice the noisy city sounds. 3. #OccupyNap – Sometimes half asleep is better than your other options. … and the #1 Occupy Sleep joke is: 1. #OccupySleep – Because the other 99% deserve more sleep.

In Munich, cabaret performer Weiss Ferdl would bring out large photographs of Hitler, Goering, and other Nazi leaders, and then think out loud, “Now should I hang them, or line them up against the wall?” Several cabaret comedians had a simple routine in which they walked onto the stage with a gag over their mouth, sat on a chair silent for several minutes, then stood up and walked off the stage.
