The Onion discovers non-profits

Somebody over there has clearly spent some time in non-profit world...this piece gave voice to the little demon sitting on the shoulder of every veteran development director or executive director: "When we need your help wiping this degenerative disorder that affects 30,000 Americans off the face of the earth, we'll let you know, okay?"

Here's another recent piece that somebody pointed out to me though it's actually based on a fairly dated premise.

Those reminded me of this one from a few years ago that is especially funny if you've dealt with any of the big national foundations, which are internally quite formal, almost stuffy..."binge endowing", hah! And the photo is perfect (that is actually the MacArthur chief, who I've met at functions here in Chicago).
