NEW YORK (AP) - The satirical paper of record is dipping into its archives.

The Onion has announced that it is publishing digitized versions of its old print editions. TheOnion.com website will begin posting a handful of old issues every week in the coming months.

Unearthed headlines include "Canada Signs Nonaggression Pact with the United States" and "Everybody's Eatin' Bread!"

The Onion was founded in 1988 in Madison, Wis. Though it began as a local college newspaper, it grew into a national institution and went online in 1996.
