The Onion Invents "Father-in-Law" Think Tank

News satire organization The Onion has invented a new think tank - a Washington, DC-based think tank of fathers-in-law.  The think tank, however, was not given a name.  Here is what The Onion is reporting:
In its most sweeping policy statement to date, a Washington-based think tank of leading fathers-in-law issued a comprehensive single-sentence solution to the nation’s immigration, unemployment, and crime problems Tuesday. “All you gotta do is round ’em up and send ’em back,” read the one-line report, which the interdisciplinary team of middle-aged men affirmed would resolve all three difficult issues if the government was not, as long-term observational data suggested, blinded by political correctness. “Simple as that.” The new report from the father-in-law think tank comes on the heels of last year’s five-word white paper on how to handle unrest in the African-American community.

This is not the first time that The Onion has invented a think tank.  Last year, Think Tank Watch reported on another think tank it invented: the Westchester Institute for Ethics and the Human Person.
