The Onion
Okay so I lean towards the irreverent because I've learned that when you take things too seriously- well- in my opinion real life is serious enough on its own!  The Onion is hands down the best source for a daily laugh.  They cover all aspects of the news- politics, sports, business, opinion, world, tech, celebrities, and they do it in a way that no one else can.  They actually have a print version along with the website.   When it comes to making fun of the serious the onion …

   “God Answers Prayers of Paralyzed Little Boy: ‘No,’ says God”; “Congress Deadlocked Over How Not to Provide Healthcare”; “Google Opt Out Feature Lets Users Protect Privacy By Moving to Remote Village”, are just a few of the thousands of satirical news headlines that have graced the pages of The Onion.

About this organization

Wiki

The Onion is an American news satire organization. It features satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news as well as an entertainment newspaper and website known as The A.V. Club. It claims a national print circulation of 690,000 and says 61 percent of its web site readers are between 18 and 44 years old. Since 2007, the organization has been publishing satirical news audios and videos online, as the "Onion News Network".

The Onion's articles comment on current events, both real and imagined. It parodies traditional newspaper features, such as editorials, man-on-the-street interviews, and stock quotes, as well as traditional newspaper layout and AP-style editorial voice. Much of its humor depends on presenting everyday events as newsworthy items, and by playing on commonly used phrases, as in the headline, "Drugs Win Drug War."

A second part of the newspaper is a non-satirical entertainment section called The A.V. Club that features interviews and reviews of various newly released media, and other weekly features. The print edition also contains restaurant reviews and previews of upcoming live entertainment specific to cities where a print edition is published. The online incarnation of The A.V. Club has its own domain, includes its own regular features, A.V. Club blogs and reader forums, and presents itself as a separate entity from The Onion itself.
