I dunno. A couple of decent ones. Just thought I'd throw it out there

Good for a chuckle if you don't mind an occasional, OK, often f-bomb.

Yeah, I gotta say that had potential to be very funny but really wasn't. maybe we out to start our own thread on fake ozzie quotes, bet it would hysterical.

A good idea and seems to be right down The Onion's alley, but poorly executed. Not even one smile from any of those here.

I would expect way better from the Onion.

Come on, the Dustin Pedroia quote was pretty funny. The image of Ozzie feeding him apples made me laugh.

Hell, Ozzie's said funnier things than they made up trying to be funny.

Fairly weak from the people who gave you the 4,096-team NCAA Tournament...

The 2008 Cubs fan line made me laugh, the rest were pretty bad though.

I thought they were alright for a little side note in the Onion sports section. The Smash Mouth one was pretty stupid, though.

Just like the real Ozzie!
