Sometimes humor just captures the gravity of the problem so much better than yet another news segment on what a fine job we humans are doing of destroying our wonderful home. The Onion gets that. Masked behind their witty, fake news stories are real issues.
Take, for example, these four funny drought-related stories recently published by The Onion:

Would not be surprised if that were true.

Again, probably not far off from the truth.

I guess we really all do have to make sacrifices during the drought.
See! There's always a silver lining.
