ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Ex-FIFA Official Cites Satirical Article From The Onion in His Self-Defense (ROBERT MACKEY, 5/31/15, NY Times)

Jack Warner, a former vice president of world soccer's governing body, FIFA, defended himself against corruption charges on Sunday by citing an article from The Onion, apparently unaware that it was satire.

Mr. Warner, 72, who was arrested last week in connection with a wide-ranging criminal investigation by the United States Justice Department, held up the faux news report, calling it evidence of an American conspiracy, in a video statement that was uploaded to the web and then removed later in the day.

Of course, the funniest part is that taking down FIFA is an American conspiracy, as are all global law enforcement actions.
