    Why "the onion"? "Is it an onion" is something you might hear with all the new varieties around, but when is anyone ever going to refer to a specific onion using the definite article "the"?

    If you're from USA, there is a satire website called The Onion, and when there's a crazy piece of news, people ask if it's The Onion.
