Premiere The Road NY

Cormac McCarthy

The Onion has been en fuego as of late, unleashing a trove of uncomfortably authentic Trump "documents" and generally skewering the spin right out of the most powerfully stupid administration this crumbling country has ever been made to suffer through.

But the satirists still make time for the ever smaller non-Trump airspace in our lives, and we focus our attention and gratitude there today, friends.

Yes, yes, it was originally published in 2013, but still El Mitotero applauds The Onion for re-posting this classic yesterday



When the renowned Santa Fe author's rippling bod graces your screen, you know it must now be summer, and summer is good.

But this is a tremendous joke any time of year. El Mitotero wonders: Has McCarthy seen it? He does not read present-day novels, but does he have a Google Alert set for his own name?

If you can't be bothered to click through the link, here, enjoy some all the same:

"I got into this routine where I was just hitting the gym every morning, writing some of my novel in the afternoon, and then hitting the gym again later that day, and it paid off,” the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Blood Meridian told reporters as he massaged his washboard abs with deep tanning oil. “I didn’t go in for any of that carve-and-starve stuff, so I just upped my cardio, did two-a-days, and took an Isagenix whey protein shake every morning. Feels good to look good, you know?”

 And now back to your regularly scheduled apocalypse
