Satire "Articles" That Actually Made You Laugh

I like this one personally, and have used it as an example of satirical writing being used to convince a hostile audience to convert to your viewpoint in classes before:

Don't Make English Official--Ban it Instead

It's written in a way where there is no way to be entirely sure it is satire until over halfway through it, but there are subtle signs. Using the words "I would like to offer a modest proposal" references a Jonathan Swift essay made famous for satire for example.
