Is it worse, or better, than a creationist on the school board?

Once again the folks at The Onion have demonstrated their satirical genius!  They 'report' on an Arkham, MA school board member who is pushing to add the unspeakable, sanity-shattering dark arts to the curriculum:

"Fools!" said West, his clenched fist striking the lectern before him. "We must prepare today's youth for a world whose terrors are etched upon ancient clay tablets recounting the fever-dreams of the other gods—not fill their heads with such trivia as math and English. Our graduates need to know about those who lie beneath the earth, waiting until the stars align so they can return to their rightful place as our masters and wage war against the Elder Things and the shoggoths!"

The article is very entertaining, even for those with only a passing knowledge of the works of H.P. Lovecraft.  (h/t Pharyngula)
