    Tru, but it's not from the Onion. We get satire all the time from The Babylon Bee.

    Danish West Indies - Wikipedia

    [the islands of Saint Thomas, Saint John, and Saint Croix]

    "In 1852 the Danish parliament first debated the sale of the increasingly unprofitable colony....The islands were eventually sold for 25 million dollars to the United States,...renaming the islands the United States Virgin Islands."

    Always liked Borowitz for the last 20 years even though he is a member of the other party.

    If the Danes would pay me what the silly county says my house is worth, that would be great.
