The Onion has quickly become the world's most popular humor publication, misinforming half a million readers a week with one-of-a-kind social satire both in print (on news stands nationwide) and online (at www.theonion.com) from its remote office in Madison, Wisconsin.

Now that we've entered the new century, look back and breathe a sigh of relief. Listen to the march of history as performed by editor-in-chief Scott Dikkers and The Onion's award-winning staff. "Our Dumb Century" presents the sounds of a twentieth century you'll barely recognize.

"...The Onion gleefully offends, armed with a powerful combination of puerility and intelligence... What the National Lampoon was to the '70s, The Onion may be for the new millennium"
- Washington Post

"The crackling sound of the supposedly vintage broadcasts and the amazingly accurate voice impersonations of historic figures make this comic spin on history a special treat."
-Billboard

Listen here to Volume One of the paper's greatest, most hard-hitting stories. This audiobook contains some of The Onion's most popular news stories. Listen here to an excerpt from "Finest News Reporting (Vol. 1)."[Random House Audio]
