Oh my! Hilarious....

Seriously, I truly cannot understand what CNN are thinking... they'll wake up soon and choose someone else. Or, he'll crash and burn very quickly... I'll give him a year, at most.

Looks legit to me:

TYPICAL household goods including monocle grease and penny farthing oil have been removed from the basket of items used to measure inflation.

The new basket will include a range of modern, everyday purchases including spats, violin cases and sheet music for Dixieland jazz.

Officials say they want to bring the consumer price index up to date without going so far as to include things that people actually buy.

A Treasury spokesman said: "There are two kinds of inflation. There's the inflation we talk about on the news, which generally hovers around the 2% mark.
"Then there's the inflation that you pay in the shops, and God only knows what that is."


And whats your beef with The Onion? Hard hitting well written journalism easily up to the standards of most of the other rags...

Thanks BigNick - good to have a number of sources to be sure my input is balanced.

I adore The Onion and nothing makes me happier than to see it cited as a source by a real paper, which happens every now and then.

From Calmloki: "The new basket will include a range of modern, everyday purchases including spats, violin cases and sheet music for Dixieland jazz."

What? Where is the cost of the Tommy gun?

If you enjoyed The Daily Mash, check out News Biscuit as well. (Why do all of these satirical sites have names based around food?)
