Can we mark ONION posts please?

That fine line between sarcasm and reality is getting too narrow. Could we agree to start all Onion posts with ONION: please?

I love seeing their stuff, really. But reality is getting too close to sarcasm IMO. Could we mark it as such just to save us old timers from an occasional coronary? Please?
Thank you.

1. it is true that sometimes you have to ask yourself if its satire.

Its no longer obvious with Trump and his Ilk. Everything is possible.

2. What's the fun in that?

But sarcasm, not satire?

Please.

5. What's your question?

The answer is yes. And by yes, I mean no.

One should always be on guard when reading stuff online, and never assume it is what it says it is.

6. I thought you'd been briefed

The Onion stopped running satirical news on November 9, 2016. We're in an era when a failed game-show host is in the White House, the Republican Party thinks it's okay that he colluded with the Russians to steal the election, and a third of all millennials think the earth is flat. How can you possibly make up anything more bizarre than the current reality?

7. The internet is no place for unlabeled humor.

A label in time saves nine.

9. I feel bad for outfits such as The Onion. They've got nothing on reality these days.

How do you top the madness that is today's Republican Party?
