    I thought it was funny, and I agree that I think Keef would as well. I do think he has been looking better lately than he has in years though.

    Word.

    That one was funny as hell! I bet Keef would love it, and I bet the housekeeper gets a little extra something in her envelope next payday if he does read it :cool:

    as Sharon Osborn says, "in the event of an all out nuclear war, the only survivors will be Ozzy Osborn, Keith Richards and cockroaches." I'll wager this housekeeper makes a decent wage...wonder how much she was paid to do her 'expose'? Like she's saying something nobody could figure out...sheesh

    He will probably outlive us all, and then start reverse aging.

    They probably paid her peanuts, or onions.

    You're not seriously wondering how much the housekeeper was paid...to do her expose. Right?

    You understand the article is a complete work of fiction, yes? Like everything else the Onion does, it's satire; they didn't actually interview Keef's housekeeper.

    Works for me. A "bad gateway" error is indicative of a problem in the 'net between your computer and the server you're trying to access; lots of times, it's a temporary hiccup that will fix itself if you refresh or try again later.

    Yeah, I was thinking about letting the cat out of the bag too for some folks but I hate to be the one who spoils Christmas for the kiddies. :D

    I never thought of The Onion as a secret site meant to prank the gullible. It's the online arm of an old, established satirical newspaper. The web site's been around for about 16 years; the newspaper for maybe 25 years. And anyone who reads an entire Onion article should be able to figure out it's just a joke. Pointing out that an Onion article is satire is roughly equivalent to explaining that Star Trek isn't a reality show. :lol:

    And of course it is not, but many (and not just here) miss that fine point between fact and fiction. And apparently my satirical commentary was equally missed by some. ;)
