The Turnip: (O.H.M.'s "Onion" Parody, Vol. 1)

Area Woman Fails to Donate to Wikipedia Fundraiser

JUNEAU, AK

While conducting important online research into the lyrics to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," area woman Samantha Overton was confronted with Wikipedia's stark fundraising campaign: "If everyone donated $3 right now, this fundraiser would be over in an hour," the homepage banner pleaded in bolded, highlighted font.

Having no intention of spending five minutes and $3 to ensure net neutrality and future free access to endless information, Overton quickly scrolled down to a picture of Ms. Swift at last year's Grammy Awards, causing the banner to mercifully disappear from view.

At press time, Overton was sheepishly deleting email solicitations from The Red Cross disaster relief fund and PBS.
