Onion Offers Trans Fat 'Truthiness'

By Published on .

Note to the humor-challenged among you: The link that follows is to fake news. The Onion has a piece titled Frito-Lay Angrily Introduces Line of Healthy Snacks. I only wish the head of a major marketer would go on the record having a fit about this trans fat nonsense. This article had me chuckling so hard my jowels jiggled and I almost had a coronary.

Here's a taste of it. It's not the funniest part of the story, but the only family-appropriate part I could find:

Frito-Lay spokeswoman Lisa Greeley, who said that the company made a commitment in 2004 to develop a healthier line of snacks but "never thought it would actually come to this," described the Flat Earth brand as "tailor-made for the small, vocal minority of health-conscious consumers who apparently can't just be content with salads, bananas, apples, or any of the literally thousands of fruits and vegetables already widely available."
