His Hole-iness, the Onion Ring
There’s a fun little thing going on over at Facebook. Someone got the bright idea to see if an onion ring could garner more “fans” than Stevo. As of this morning, The Ring has 11,121 fans while the PM has over 29,000. And this “fan club” started just yesterday – as far as I can tell.
This is, of course, all in good fun and one shouldn’t try to read too much into this unprecedented groundswell of Onionosity in Canada. But this does should how viral the new media really can be and should be a cautionary note to public figures who do not recognize its power.
For the record, I predict that The Great and Wondrous Onion will have double the number of fans by the weekend.
It’s also a good laugh to scroll through some of the comments being posted on the site. Here’s a sampling:
Even though both make people cry, onions do it without intent!!!
Do you think A & W would give us corporate sponsorship? I’ve always liked their onion rings… mmmmm
This onion ring would NEVER take a 2-month holiday in the middle of my meal!
I think anything can get more fans than Stephen Harper. Harper does what he wants, leaving a horrible taste in our mouths. The onion ring is battered than fried and leaves a wonderful taste in our mouths.
One day, I wanted to buy a coffee, but I was 14 cents short, and this onion ring gave me a quarter … and even said ‘keep the change’ … that’s why I’m a fan!
This onion ring has suspended the production of all other onion rings until after the Olympics
Oh, and in the time it took for me to write this, His Whole-liness’s fan base has grown to 11,460.
ALL HAIL THE RING!
