Default 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 . . .
