Is the website "23/6" serious, or a joke like "The Onion"?

I honestly can’t tell if they are kidding!

Joke. It’s the comedy wing of The Huffington Post.

Ah thanks, I subscribe to the Post, but I could never see why they linked to what can appear to be so bigoted sometimes… :P

Like the Onion, its a parody of news. Checkout the videos, there very funny.

Dang. I can see a round of junk emails coming to me now and citing the articles on 24/6 as a fact just like the ones do from the Onion. I hate those because many of them do sound like they can be plausible and I have a permanent bookmark on Snopes.com to check before I panic. I just found a link http://www.dmwmedia.com/news/2007/11/09/iac-huffington-post-launch-news-satire-website-23–6 that describes what it is. Enjoy. I am always up for a new website fo a good laugh.
