On February 27, 2017 The Onion posted a one-minute parody video on How To Conquer A Fear Of Public Speaking that dispensed the following bad advice:
1] Fill the crowd with a few familiar faces who will lie to you about how it went.
2] Never start a speech without tossing a few fun-sized candy bars into the audience first to get them on your side.
3] Close your eyes and breathe deeply before each word during your speech.
4] Try to imagine everyone in the audience dead.
5] Take solace in knowing that no matter how bad your speech goes, it will be forgotten immediately upon its conclusion.
