the-onion-logoNo, its not….but as a fan of The Ohio State University that would  be a heavy helping of Just Desserts!  We have used stories in the past from The Onion and I have to say they are my favorites.  This week “America’s Finest News Source” has a special issue on the workplace, a must read!  This story plays so well into our past diploma mill stories I felt compelled to post this satirical masterpiece.  I am hoping for some background check stories to pop up soon. Enjoy.
