Scott Dikkers' Onion "Archives" ...

Okay, so I'm really really hoping that the Moon Landing article and audio bit Scott Dikkers shared are online somewhere. After a cursory search of The Onion, I cannot find any of the best headlines he had shared. Did he just create them special for TAM?

If anyone else has found them somewhere on line, please reply. I want to share it with readers of my blog if possible.

Thanks,
Brian

I got photos. Give me a day or so, and they'll be online.

That would be better than what I have for sure.

Thanks.

All the frontpages contained in Scott's presentation appear in the Onion's book, "Our Dumb Century," published in 1999. The audio of the moon landing, with accompanying video, is YouTubed here:

Do a Google search on "the onion man walks on f***ing moon" (use the uncensored word). I found several links to the newspaper version, including this one: http://members.shaw.ca/rlongpre01/moon.html

(It should be noted for those that have not seen this yet, there is a lot of profanity in the article)

I'd like to find the one with the picture of the archaeologist digging up the skeleton with the headline "Archaeologists Uncover Ancient Race of Skeletons".

My Anthropology professor would like that.

Thanks everyone. I tried one Google search, but I didn't get good results.

That's all I need then, I guess.

All the articles are in the book "Our Dumb Century."
There's a $4 and $11 versions of them on Amazon. The $4 one is actually a mini-book and the $11 one is an enlarged regular sized book.
