So I generally stay out of our entertainment section of our forum, but I got a message via our Mod reporting forum that someone indicated that this content was “Spam”. In this case it was “Spam” as it was posted twice in the same thread, however it was the first time I ever seen or read it. It did publish yesterday. The title in the Onion is ‘Obama Depressed, Distant Since ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Series Finale‘. It features Obama reading the Battlestar Forum.

I saved the page for posterity, but here is a screenshot of it:

Very cool find!
