I enjoyed the "Onion" for its simplicity, specifically when it says, "Our skin is just a cover up...in an onion there's only onion." I found this fascinating. It breaks down the humans form. It criticizes it for being complex and not ideal. The onion has only onion parts...inside, outside, up, and down. The onion is praised for its simplicities whereas the human form is criticized for its complexity. The onion seems at rest with itself, but humans are veiled by their skin. The onion does not have any skin. It just has onion. Essentially, the onion is perfect. The "Onion" clearly displayed two clear values: simplicity and perfection.
