I’m a huge fan of The Onion – it’s a great place to get some fake news and a giggle or two. However, I have recently noticed a growing trend of Red Cross specific articles…
Allow me to present the following evidence showing that The Onion may in fact, have a not-so-secret crush on the Red Cross:
1) STUDY: Nearly Half of Americans Can’t Swim
The article was based on the results from our Swimming Survey
2) Then they published an article about Beach Safety Tips
Curious, we think they must have LOVED reading our own beach safety tips and decided to add a few of their own? Or maybe they were inspired by our aquatics program founder, Commodore Longfellow – aka “The Amiable Whale” (we’re sure inspired by this guy!).
3) Apparently the best Lifeguards out there are named Blake and Kayla
Nation’s Blakes Cruise Easily Through Lifeguard Tryouts
Now, their latest piece of Red Cross love – that is actually a good reminder that we should all give blood during the summer.
So thank you, The Onion, we love you right back – even though your love for us is a little weird.
