I thought this was pretty amusing. If it's been posted before just let this thread die peacefully.

Brilliantly funny!

What newspapers does this appear in? (It says 250 syndicated papers, how can I never have heard of this column?--or was that a joke?)

TomMonster, it was a joke. This article is from The Onion, a satirical newspaper.

That's what I thought--being The Onion! Too bad, though, what brilliant idea for a column.

haha. It would be awesome. I wish there was a way real people could send their questions to The Onion to be answered by the stage directions.

They do the advice column just about every week- but always with a different object offering advice; Ask the instruction manual for installing a dishwasher, Ask the Connecticut Rules of the Road, Ask a recipe for Bouillabaisse, etc....
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
