Steven Tyler Laid Off From Aerosmith As Band's Jobless Rate Hits 20%

So states the infamous The Onion in what is an excellent parody of the ongoing Aerosmith drama (even if a bit long). Here's an excerpt:

Analysts speculate that the sector-wide layoff was a result of multiple factors, including redundancies in the singing-songwriting division, rising rehab fees that have cost the group millions, and a 34 percent decline in jump-kicks since 2003. In addition, some of Aerosmith's younger, more ambitious employees, such as Joe Perry, 57, are willing to sing and play an instrument at the same time, often for half the salary.
