I used to play a pretty entertaining game with my students – "Real News or The Onion?" As the name implies, I provide a series of real, unedited headlines and the players try to guess whether they are real (from the "Top Stories" section a major news network website, almost always CNN.com or FoxNews.com) or The Onion. Feel like giving it a try?

Go ahead, give it a whirl (sans google cheating). The winner gets….something awesome.
