Sometimes The Onion has a satirical piece that's, well, almost completely true:
Visa Exposed As Massive Credit Card Scam
SAN FRANCISCO—In coordinated raids Monday at locations in Delaware, South Dakota, and California, federal agents apprehended dozens of executives at Visa Inc., a sham corporation accused of perpetrating the largest credit card scam in U.S. history.
According to indictments filed in U.S. District Court, Visa posed as a reputable lender, working through banks to peddle a variety of convincing-looking credit cards carefully designed to dupe consumers into spending far more money than they had. The criminal group would then impose a succession of escalating fees on unpaid balances, allegedly bilking some $300 billion from victims in the past year alone.
The article goes on to enumerate Visa's alleged wrongs. Only, most of them are true.
Chuckle, or nervous laughter?
