Hard Hitting Reporting

Quoth the Wall Street Journal:

Andrew Concors, a physical therapist[…] has had a couple patients in the past who have ruptured their balls at home while sitting on them[…]. Still, some workers say sitting on a ball makes them feel younger. “It kind of reminded me of when I was a kid,” says [Pat] Harder.

Shall I quote more or did you get the general thrust?

In comparison, this story from The Onion sounds downright serious:

According to [child-safety expert Kenneth] McMillan, children can suffer broken bones, head trauma, and even fatal injuries from unsupervised exposure to childlike awe. “If your children are allowed to unlock their imaginations, anything from a backyard swing set to a child’s own bedroom can be transformed into a dangerous undersea castle or dragon’s lair,” McMillan said. “But by encouraging your kids to think linearly and literally, and constantly reminding them they can never be anything but human children with no extraordinary characteristics, you can better ensure that they will lead prolonged lives.”

That is all.
