Onion, or NotTheOnion?

A simple website where your goal is to guess if a headline comes from The Onion or not.


About The Project

We live in a weird timeline, where articles from satirical websites are sometimes mistaken for true articles. The Onion is an example of such a website that spawned two subreddits: /r/TheOnion, and /r/NotTheOnion. The latter contains news so bizarre that they could belong to The Onion.

This website shows you two headlines, one taken from /r/TheOnion and another from /r/NotTheOnion. Your goal is to guess which one is from /r/TheOnion! There are trackers for how many times you guessed right, and how many times you guessed right in a row. If you find a certain combination to be particularly funny or challenging, you can easily share it with your friends or followers.

Hope you enjoy!
