Continuity at the Onion?

Today’s Onion includes the story
Spider Eggs Hatch In Bush’s Brain“.
This would be unremarkable, except for the fact that last week, the
Onion Radio News had the story
Vice President Cheney Seen Dragging Egg Sac Through West Wing“.

Is the Onion introducing continuity between stories? Has this formerly
resolutely short-attention-span publication yielded to pressure to
introduce story arcs? Stay tuned. Unless this turns out to be a
coincidence, in which case just forget it and go about your business.
