I think it is. The Onion came on the scene as a college paper when Gen X-ers were in college and many of the cultural references are about stuff other people might not get.

☐ Yes, The Onion is primarily targeted at Gen X sensibilities.
☐ No, The Onion is a purveyor of broad spectrum humor.
☑ Ironwing is awesome sauce.

I thought we were Team Oregon Trail?

Not that I care, The Onion is great no matter who it was targeted at.

I don't have a scanner but I've mailed my ballot to Greg at Purch headquarters.

Mods, could you please see that the response to the poll is posted here once my correspondence is received?

Thanks!

Its loaded with sarcasm and cynicism, so, yeah probably. Also you actually have to know whats really going on in the world to understand this is a spoof, so its clearly not for Baby Boomers or Millenials.

I was into The Onion when I was in high school (old millennial, I guess). So no, Ironwing isn't awesome sauce.

is this the thread where we are actually begging for coins instead of discussing the subject?

The millennials, they are catching on, they are waking up, they are growing up. The beast awakens ...

Well Boomers sold their sense of humor for a Harley and a tax cut, and Millennials are too broke to afford one, so by default GenX is the only generation able to enjoy it.
