Satire site 'The Onion' takes a jab at Charlotte

The Onion
-
The Onion's parody story on Charlotte.

The satire website "The Onion" wrote an article making fun of man settling down in Charlotte.

"Suddenly stopping in his tracks as he boarded the Lynx blue line to go apply for a library card on Tuesday, local man Mark Collier came to the horrifying realization that he was putting down roots in the city of Charlotte, NC," the article reads.

“'Wait, hold on a second, am I...am I building a life for myself in Charlotte, North Carolina?'"

The story was written by someone with knowledge of Charlotte, since Collier ends up with an apartment in Plaza Midwood, shops at the South End Super Flea and loves Freedom Park in the springtime.

He is even picking up on Charlotte sports, the story said: "Earlier this fall, he even attended a Charlotte Bobcats game and heard himself say the words 'let’s go ’Cats!' while clapping."
