After months of anticipation, the Onion has unveiled its newest comedy project, Clickhole, a much-needed send-up of sites that churn out clickbait-y viral content. Though this is not the first time the Internet has attempted to give BuzzFeed and Upworthy their comeuppance, it is definitely the swiftest, most comprehensive take down yet. The results of Clickhole will shock you. Except not.  The amazing thing about Clickhole is how much it doesn't seem like parody at all. For proof, take a look at some Buzzfeed and Clickhole pieces side by side:

Instead of taking Buzzfeed's Which Minor Friends Character Are You?, you can waste your time taking Clickhole's "How Many 'Friends' Episodes Have You Seen? quiz.

You could look at 17 Chairs That Forgot How to Chair, in earnest, or look at them ironically in 10 Hilarious Chairs That Think They're People.

And next time you want a reminder how old and nostalgic you are for the 90s...

...just remember that The Movie ‘High Fidelity’ Would Be A Sexy 14-Year-Old By Now.

And let Clickhole be your new source for enlightening videos:

Because remember, all Web content can and must go viral:

Good Work, Clickhole. Thanks For Giving Us An Idea Worth Spreading.
