This American Life

I recommend this week's free MP3 download of This American Life. The first segment is about The Onion writers and their process for deciding which headlines go in that week's paper. They tear through hundreds of them before deciding on the final 16, so during the audio, there are all these deadpan deliveries of short headlines, some of which are stupid and some of which had me pausing the player so I could laugh for two minutes. The few I remember:

Cardinal Teaches Pope To Make Church By Interlocking His Fingers
Ghost Just Dropped By To Say "Boo"
Star Of David To Add Seventh Point
