Let's Play Onion or Journal Star

OK, Journal Star or The Onion? Here's the first paragraph:

"GREELEY, NE—Experts confirmed Monday that a single black crow perched ominously on a fence post in rural Nebraska is almost certainly a harbinger of great doom and despair for all Americans."

OK, one more, because those one-sentence paragraphs have you unfairly assuming Journal Star without really thinking about it:

"The crow came eerily to rest on the rickety wooden post at 10:26 a.m. Monday, according to farm hands working in a nearby field at the time. Citing a vague but certain feeling that "something just wasn't right," one of the laborers contacted law enforcement officials, and within hours federal authorities had converged on the site."
