** In a very dark running gag, the site has run different articles all titled "[[http://www.theonion.com/article/no-way-to-prevent-this-says-only-nation-where-this-36131 'No Way To Prevent This,' Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens]]" whenever a mass shooting happens in the United States, with most of the text being copied and pasted from the previous article, just swapping out the details of the tragedy. To date, they've done seven of these.
