    “We considered her part of the family.”

    “She really was beautiful … those teeth … her hindquarters were so strong.”

    “She never tried to buck when we put the training harness on her.”

    “I understand you’re starting a foundation in her honor?” “Well Shawn was only 17 so we never got to breed her…”

    “We’re planning on naming our next gymnast ‘Spirit of Shawn’.”

    Usually I find the writing behind these Onion things only okay, but this one was stellar – the level of irreverence reminds me of National Lampoon or The Firesign Theatre at their best.
