Satirical news site and sarcastically self-proclaimed "America's finest news source" The Onion made the Tampa Bay Rays the butt of the joke this week by posting an article titled "Area Stingray Dreaming Of Making It To Tropicana Field Touch Tank."
If you're not familiar with The Onion, which was fake news back when "fake news" was fun and not bad, the fact that they quote the stingray as saying "It'd be such a thrill to finally rub my flaps along the tank wall as I circle around waiting for my meal" tells you what you need to know.
That got me wondering, how many times has The Onion taken aim at Tampa Bay over the years? Here are just a few examples. Click the photos to visit the stories on theonion.com.
And just in case you're really not paying attention: THESE ARE NOT REAL NEWS STORIES.
