You may have heard about the woman accused of attacking her husband after she found copies of The Onion in the trunk of his car. The story, first reported by Menomonee Falls Patch, has been featured on FOX News, The Huffington Post and other websites around the country.
However, it's not The Onion website. And why should it be? After all, it's all true.
That story got us to thinking about how often our Milwaukee suburbs have been mentioned in stories that have appeared in the satirical newspaper.
Here are some of our favorites:
