An Ace of Spades Commenter Has Something In Common With Bill Maher: The Onion Stole Their Jokes

Oh wait, the Onion didn't steal the Maher joke; they wrote it first.

Another difference: This joke is worth stealing.

I forget who first wrote it, but for a while I've been flogging a commenter's joke:

If only there were some sort of... natural mechanism to explain variations in the earth's temperature.

Such a hypothetical source would have be large, though: On the magnitude of our own sun.

Two weeks ago I spread the joke anew on Twitter.

I think the Onion noticed.

Thanks to gg.
