If you move fast, you may still be able to find the January 1, 2009 issue in local newsboxes. If you're too late, you can see most of the stories in this slideshow. For example, you get Google Announces Plan To Destroy All Information It Can't Index and Modern-Day John Henry Dies Trying To Out-Spreadsheet Excel 11.0.
But the slideshow doesn't include some of the best items in the print issue, like Even CEO Can't Figure Out How RadioShack Still In Business and the difficult to believe Factual Error Found On Internet.
Just be warned. Not all these stories are totally safe for work -- The Onion has a well-known potty mouth. But they are all totally amusing.
Oh, and then there's this story: Apple patents an iGlove for chilly iPhone users. Wait, that's not The Onion, that one's real!
