The Onion on Encyclopedia Brown

This article is


to my 9-year-old self.

Inside, I am dancing and singing, "I solved the puzzle! I solved the puzzle! And I don't need to turn to page 76!"

And my adult self is admiring the Onion writers' cleverness, to have so perfectly captured the feel of the original series while at the same time poking it in the eye.

I also love the picture of a 49-year-old Brown. It just feels so pathetically...right.


That's perfect, and hilarious. Thanks for the link! :)
Too bad they didn't print the follow-up about Commissioner Meany being arrested and indicted for Murder One because you don't put mustard ABOVE the sauerkraut on a hot dog.
