Hoboken spoofed in The Onion!

1/12/2009:

When I have a little downtime – The Onion is a fun site to read, brimming with sarcastic goodness.

Today, Hoboken was the set of one of their spoofy stories:

Horde Of Orange Monsters Exits Local Tanning Salon

HOBOKEN, NJ

“Terrifying every innocent bystanders in its wake, a menagerie of hideously hued orange beasts burst from the Hollywood Tans on Washington Street Tuesday and marched aimlessly through the downtown area in a macabre parade of unspeakable grotesquerie. “The horror!” local resident Julie Hollingsworth said as she stood frozen, blinded by the glare of the creatures’ luminous white teeth. “My eyes! My eyes are besieged! What evil forces have entered these unearthly sacks of blistered leather and made them dance so revoltingly?” According to traumatized witnesses, the monsters communicated with one another in a series of high-pitched, unrecognizable shrieks, possibly calling for the doom of all mankind or perhaps asking for the location of the nearest Pinkberry.”

[quote comment=”127132″]What I don’t understand about overly tan people — is their ability to realize they look like total shit.

When I look like shit, I think to myself “I look like shit today.” But overly tan people look at themselves and think “Wow, this unnatural orange glow in the middle of January makes me look like a million bucks.”

I think I’ll go to Nine and show everyone just how great I look.[/quote]
