The Onion
 
I keep coming across little things in The Onion that, though they aren't remotely poly, do at least shed some odd light on marriage, relationships, and American culture.

(For those who don't know, The Onion is a satirical newspaper. I've only ever seen it in print in D.C., but it has for some time been available online. There's even an app for it!)

One example came through yesterday, a kind of reality-TV mash-up:

Somehow, if this show were real, I don't think it's existence would be especially helpful in fostering broader acceptance (or even tolerance) of poly.

Another showed up earlier in the week which immediately prompted the thought, "If only they were poly . . .":

It would have been even funnier if I didn't identify with the husband quite so much . . . ;)

Here's another story that popped up yesterday. Again, not exactly poly, but kind of funny and strangely thought-provoking, anyway, especially the reason given for the other party-goers' judgment at the end.

At least it's not the formation of a threesome as such that's "completely gross."

It never rains but it pours.

Here's another one, describing the woman of my dreams. :D

Quote from one of the articles -

"While Tisch admitted she should probably feel more upset about her husband reaching out to other women, she said such concerns have been more than outweighed by the amazing sex she's been having with her boss for the past six months."

Lol!

Boundaries
 
The Onion has been reviewing the best stories of 2011, including this one, which could be the occasion for thinking about boundaries.
