It's like a TransatlanticEquivalent of ''Magazine/PrivateEye'' (except decades younger, without the investigative journalism, and as a website) and similar to the later ''[[http://www.njuz.net NJUZ]]'' and ''{{Newsbiscuit}}'' (which was created on the model "a British ''Onion''"). Similarly, ''WebSite/MinistryOfHarmony'' describes itself as "The Onion for China".

* ReactionaryFantasy: The cartoons by the fictitious artist Stan Kelly are in this vein. The character himself is a parody of an out of touch old man with conservative and (in fitting with the character's StrawmanPolitical nature) sometimes racist or downright deranged opinions.

* PoliticalCartoons: Since 2006, The Onion has published an ongoing series of over-the-top editorial cartoons, drawn by artist Ward Sutton in the fictional persona of grouchy old right-wing crank Stan Kelly.[[note]]The cartoons are actually drawn by Ward Sutton.[[/note]] Most of them feature the usual clichéd devices of the format as running gags - the UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty weeping profusely, Kelly at his drawing board muttering a cynical pun in the corner. (A number have nothing to do with politics whatsoever, instead serving as a soapbox for Kelly to gripe about his lousy ex-wife, "today's messed-up teens", and the police officers who keep pulling him over for driving drunk.)[[note]]Due to the dead-on satirical nature, and how the source isn't immediately obvious in most of the cartoons, it's also one of the features most easily confused as being real.[[/note]]
