The other financial gap

Why does this spoof on the Onion remind me so much of David McWilliams "Generation Game". I'm not as financially comfortable as I'd like to be (I'd like a Euromillions win this weekend if it can be arranged, thanks) but I don't think that Mr McWilliams quite thought out all of his argument.

RTE seems to be hell-bent on making us nervous as opposed to shaking us from our complacency. How about going through possible fixes so the public can lobby for them (without the need to post nappies please).

Its a guy geek thing, you've given us the problem, now how about helping us find the solution?

The Onion was always the most incredible, satirical and eerily prophetic site site ever.

This is gold. They have taken it to a new level.

Parody at its best. But as you point out it still hits a nerve.

well Robert, all satire should hit nerves. its the nature of the beast.

And supers... very poetic. However given my great great etc. grandfather connection I'm the last one to talk about trying to force the sea back.

no, I've seen them. Of course I grew up in his neck of the woods so there might be something in the water.
