Hundley: "I was doing the right thing! I was making the flight better for everyone!"
Charged with assault, out of a job, and with nowhere else to turn after he allegedly directed racial slurs toward and then slapped a 19-month-old aboard an MSP-to-ATL flight, Joe Hundley shared his side of the story yesterday in an Onion op-ed.

The long and short of it: Who wouldn't do the same thing?

Here's a screengrab that gives you the gist (to read the whole thing, click here):

The whole thing strikes us as a little strange, since we could've sworn Hundley was saying earlier this week that he didn't hit the child and merely asked the mother to "quiet" him. Then again, the Onion has a reputation for leaving its readers a little bit confused.

What? You are aware that the Onion is a fake newspaper right?

This reads like CP thinks Hundley actually wrote this. They do know what the Onion is, right?

So...Is this supposed to be satirical? The Onion isn't confusing at all, but this post is!

Aaron, do you really think he wrote this? Or is this satire of satire?

What is this?  Are you just posting a link to an onion article? What strikes you as strange? Why?  Why?

I hope this isn't being posted as "controversial", because if you don't expect this kind of stuff from the onion, you must be new here.
