Comedy/Politics - The White House goes after The Onion

The Onion is getting sued by the White House for apparently inappropriate use of the presidential insignia.
White House spokesman Trent Duffy said people who work in the executive mansion do have a sense of humor, but not when it comes to breaking regulations.

“When any official sign or seal is being used inappropriately the party is notified,” Duffy said.

“You cannot pick and choose where to enforce that rule. It’s important that the seal or any White House insignia not be used inappropriately,” he said.

Duffy said while he does not personally read The Onion, he admitted knowing others in the White House who do. “Like everyone else, we like a good laugh.”

Sweet reply from Onion editor "Dickie"

'“I would advise them to look for that other guy Osama (bin Laden) ... rather than comedians. I don’t think we pose much of a threat,” Dikkers said.'
