The Talbott family has suffered a tragic loss. Everything the family had saved for years, all of it disappeared in an instant. Now as The Onion reports, they set to the task of rebuilding their lives after the huge setback of a crashed DVR.

The Onion‘s satire-masters once again hits hilariously close to home with this one. Digital content is almost never “irreplaceable,” in fact it’s pretty much the exact opposite.
