Wait, what? It's not real news? If you're a fan of The Onion, get your daily fix of breaking news, video, radio-news and more in this streamlined app - with the most current headline of your choice delivered via Live Tile. Did you LOL at the article about the area cat that sued over being sent to the doghouse? Save it for later, post it on facebook, or email it to a friend quickly and easily.

try it. it's free. you know you want it.

    Nice App... Great way to get what I want on the run...

    Very funny. But often you tap a headline and it takes you to a different story. Also, some stories don't match photos. Wish some stories (especially ones that are just headlines in the app) linked directly to the Onion site. But, still funny.
