Can you believe the nerve of this kid? Although, you have to give him credit for finding the loophole.

that was kind of in bad taste, i feel bad for laughing at it.yeah its obvious its fake though. obviously they wouldn`t give an 8 year old trips to space, an arsenal of medieval weapons, a face in mount rushmore, jet packs, military vehicles, ect. any body who thought this was real is stupid, sorry to say.

The list of stuff he wants is crazy
4 tons of assorted candy
9 trips to walt disney for chad and family
1 pirate ship
1 ball pit installed in bedroom
1 `real life f-14 tomcat`
1 jumbo-size water balloon catapult
face carved on Mt. Rushmore (to be completed in 2031)
All Bat mobiles ever
3 trips to outer space
1 handicap-accessible treehouse
5 personal robot servants
138 hot dog lunches with Yankee Johnny Damon
2 jetpacks
55 wall-mounted medieval weapons
Nightly fireworks display
Cameos in all future Spiderman movies

And that`s not even close to the end of the list.

Also, hipolvr, does that mean you sent us that from Make-A-Wish?

Damn, I would just ask for a PS3 and some games; a second wish... if I`m going to die, make Bush and Ratzinger come with me to hell ^^.
I could have said that RBD, Kudai, emos and all the Reguetón disappear too, to make the world a happier place; but if I do that, i`ll be suffering an eternity with all that S*IT

oh wow I thought this was realy for a second before I went to the comments... :p
but that would be pretty impossible cause I mean I don`t think they`d let him do that, there had to be a ton of kids who have asked for that...
but if it were real
I would be pissed at the family for letting him do that
and I like how the woman was like
"We can only hope that day comes relly soon"

Not everyone spends their every waking moment online. If you hate IAB maybe you should find a new site...you know, with NEW less-than-a-month-old material?

this isnt funny at al, this is terrible. i mean, there is a hint of `thats a clever wish` but none of `omg lol that kid gets whatever he wants`.

I saw that and said to myself, "This has GOT to be from The Onion." Guess I was right.

Whatever the equivalent for a comedy newspaper/website/etc.-whatever-whatall-The-Onion-people-do-and-call-it, I believe The Onion did the equivalent of jumping the shark a long time ago. The last thing they did that was impressive was that "your mama" book several years ago .... called "Portrait of Yo Mama as a Young Man." Nothing compelling ever since. On the (sorta) bright side, Mad Magazine recently did a pretty good spoof of The Onion`s tired excuse for spoofs/humor.

I know that if I were dying from Leukemia, I would totally wish for Darth Vader to play cards with me untill Jack Sparrow interrupts our game and they have a sword/lightsaber fight. Of course the giant inflatable dinosaur would attempt to save Vader, but is sadly popped.

It`s obviously fake. I base my assumption on the "Face carved on Mount Rushmore (scheduled completion 2031)." There is absolutely no way a non-profit agency, let alone the president himself, authorize such a thing.

even though it is fake. i am just curious how many of us would have made the same choice as him if we were in his place. i mean think about it you are so young and you are going to die. would you not try to do everything that you wanted to before you leave. i know i would have done the same thing. just not on that big of a scale but i would have tried to get a few things done

This is IMO the best fake news The Onion has produced. I never heard of Today Now! so I fell for the whole damn thing.

I hung on to every single word thoughout the whole video. Then I visited the make a wish foundation website and there wasn;t anything about bankruptcy. Bells rang, searched snopes, and yay, I realized I was a fool.

Good for the onion. A success story?
