Onion Talks

Saturday October 27, 2012 Written by luke

How can we use compost to power cars? What is the biggest rock? How does a dog really eat? These are the world-changing questions Onion Talks seeks to answer.

Yes, you know you've hit critical mass when The Onion tries to take you down. Onion Talks are the satire juggernaut's latest venture, an attempt to pillory the oft-self-important tone of the TED Talk phenomenon by putting up nonsense talks of their own. So far only the first talk – the aforementioned "Compost-Fueled Cars: Wouldn't That Be Great?" – has been released, but future topics include the many benefits of loudness and getting chickens to quack. There will be standing ovations.
