Area Man Denies Plagiarizing The Onion

beardedAn area man who has been accused of shamelessly ripping off a famous satirical website says he has never even heard of The Onion.

Steve Dee, aged 26, has denied copying the style and tone of “America’s Finest News Source” for the Gaming News section of TicketToCarcassonne.com, his board gaming website, which regularly attracts as many as ten readers per day.

Sources say that Mr Dee has been heard to declare “I’ve never heard of the bloody Onion.”

One witness reported “I know for a fact Steve does read The Onion because he has been emailing me articles from it for years. And to be honest, I don’t think it is as funny as it is cracked up to be.

“Sometimes, for his website, Steve just takes an article from The Onion about something like lawnmowers, and changes a few words to make it about board games instead. It’s not clever at all, and I don’t think he deserves the praise that I know he has received from at least three of his readers.

“Also, he’s not 26.”

In response to our request for a comment, Mr Dee stated “I don’t know what that bloke is talking about. I’d never even heard of The Onion until you mentioned it just now. And I’ve never heard of The Daily Mash either, before you start.”
