Default I really can't understand what the earth the guy want to do?

His last name is Chen, so I guess he's a Chinese-American. He wanted to stow a piece of important paper, why did he put it in his back pocket and guarantee it would be washed and be shredded into tatters, though? He's a freak?

CROFTON, MD—Conscientiously stowing away the important note, local man Gary Chen carefully placed a piece of paper in his back pocket Thursday to make sure it would end up going through the washing machine. “Gotta make sure to keep this in a safe spot,” said Chen of the piece of paper containing important information for accessing his investment accounts, mindfully folding it up and placing it in his jeans to guarantee that the paper would be washed and tumble dried on high heat. “I definitely should remember to hold onto this [so the laundry cycle can shred it into tatters, thus rendering the important text completely illegible]. It’ll come in handy later [when I’m picking it out of the lint catcher piece by piece].” Chen also made sure to put the pen he used to write on the paper in his front pocket to ensure it explodes ink everywhere and ruins hundreds of dollars worth of clothing.

The Onion is a satirical publication.

Thank you. I like this website and I'll usually visit it. I'm fond of the style of satirizing the faults. I'm not nice.

If you enjoy satire, The Babylon Bee is hilarious!

Cruel? How so? Do their articles hurt your feelings?

It's pure propaganda in the form of humor which is what Rush Limbaugh tried to do.
Proves my uncles and my parents' friends who went through a depression and fought in WWII were spot on when they said America will never be taken down militarily, but to watch out for propaganda. They had seen it in France even during WWI and certainly with the Nazi result of the entire town outside Auschwitz prison not believing Jews were mass murdered till it was proved to them.

It is taking a look at current events through the humorous lens, in other words Satire. It has been going on long before the Babylon Bee came into existence. What makes it funny is that it has a basis in truth.

No, the reason you don't care for it is that it shines a light on the stupidity of the left wing via their political positions.
