The Onion's latest parody takes aim at Calhoun

Jim Calhoun's often been a lightning rod for criticism, but not so much for humor, potshots or parody.

Enter the Onion Sports Dome, a weekly television program on Comedy Central that was berthed out of the snark and oft-linked online satirical newspaper, that hilarious fake news source known as The Onion. The empire of hilarity and invented news doesn't run from anything, and in a segment this week, the "Sportscenter" parody show pointed its satirical snipers at the UConn coach, stating he was using his impending death as a way of getting top recruits to the school.

It's incredibly macabre, but incredibly funny, meaning it's a typical at-bat for the kings of deadpan.
