Favorite Indy Onion headlines

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?
