This one hit about a month ago, but it was just too good to pass up. It comes from the oft-humorous The Onion and chronicles the advancement of “steaming black-guy heads” as an indication of climate change.

Steaming black-guy heads, the traditional sign of approaching winter for generations of football fans, have been occurring later in the season with every passing year, a fact that may be evidence of a climatic change with long-term effects on football itself, top scientists in the meteorological department of the National Football League said in a study released Monday.

“The phenomenon of weather-related African-American supracranial vaporous emission, or ‘Steaming Black-Guy Heads,’ as it is colloquially known, occurs when cold dry winter air comes into contact with hot, humid, shaven heads of football players, causing their personal water vapor to condense and rise on a column of heated air,” the statement read in part. “It is then observed by network cameramen, who overwhelmingly choose to film African-American players due to the dramatic contrasts that result—especially when the player in question is backlit—and beamed to millions of households during time-outs, replay reviews, and other stoppages of play. The viewers then realize that winter has come to America.”

So I pose this question: at what point should we expect to witness this phenomenon next season? Discuss.
