LIGHTER SIDE: Broadway, Belmont Star In Onion Story About "Loathsome" Neighborhood

Over at, W.H. Thompson found a piece of comic relief that features video of some familiar territory.

The Onion character "Paul Marsden" gives a walking tour on Broadway.
The Onion's recent report "Man Moving To New City Never Took Time To Truly Loathe Surroundings" features a character who gives a walking tour of his neighborhood, which just happens to be the area of Broadway and Belmont. [Note: Video contains some obscenities.]

Claiming to have lived next to Wilde, 3130 N. Broadway, for four years. The Onion actor says he will always regret not taking the time to "abhor the disgusting smell that hits ya every time you walk by."

Hey, now, that's not true. But what do you expect from a guy who apparently thinks Chicken Hut is a bodega?

Good riddance, "Paul Marsden."
