Beginning Feb. 2, The Onion will be available in Indy (see IBJ story here).

But Indianapolis has been on the satiric newspaper's radar for years. Here are some of my favorite Indy-related pieces (which may contain adult subject matter, language, etc.):

"Indianapolis Announces Really Embarrassing Bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics." (Bonus points for the Paul Poteet reference.)

"Chunk of Tire Hanging from Jimmy Johnson's Lip After Kissing Indianapolis Bricks." (OK, so it's just a headline without a story. Still funny.)

"Cash-Strapped Indy 500 To Charge Dollar-a-lap Toll."

"Peyton Manning to Spend Several Weeks with Newborn Twins Before Naming Starting Child."

"Butler Doesn't Understand What They Have to Do to Get Out of Indiana."

"Nation's Couples Descend on Nation's Rotating Restaurants."

"Series of Serial-Killer Killings Rocks Serial-Killer Community."

"JazzFest Performer Recognizes Crowd from Last Year." (The Onion is often at its best with unexpected targets.)

"Pony-wanting Ron Artest To Be on Best Behavior Until Christmas." (An oldie but a goodie.)

"Everyone In NCAA Head Office Wins NCAA Office Pool."

So do you think Indy will embrace The Onion?

Did I miss a favorite local story?

  1. On my rental property, before tax caps, I was paying $2,000/yr in property taxes. After the tax caps I'm paying $4,000/yr. How exactly am I "benefiting the most"?

  2. Nick, I too tried that new Walmart NM on Michigan a couple of weeks ago. I had the same feeling, it had good prices, but something was just off about it. I can't put my finger on what it is, but it just didn't feel right. On the plus side, it was easy to get in and out of and much less busy than a typical Walmart.

  3. @Young Hoosier - you might want to check out the Paris skyline again....it's decidedly taller than 7-8 stories http://all-that-is-interesting.com/paris-skyline-photo

  5. So the GOP legislature passed a bill that gave big breaks to business at the expense of Indiana families. Color us not surprised.
