    Yeah, the Onion's not usually too subtle, but for all the times they print headlines like "Scissors Cuts Paper, Rock, Turns Blade on Self", sometimes they come up with a gem that needs a double take. I'm just a bit surprised that we haven't seen the word "Califorzenegger" more often....

    Haven't heard that one before. An LA Times columnist called Schwartzenegger "Der Gropenfuhrer." Brought tears to my eyes!
