"Fake News since 2005"

img1.fark.net is for Submitter, who wouldn't know img1.fark.net if it was a wise Latina judge.

Are we supposed to be outraged at the Onion too?

Do you believe everything you read on the web there, subby?

Just to clear it all up, here is the Snopes article (new window) on this.

We need a Snopes article to clear up obvious - in more than one sense of the word - satire? Really? It's come to that?
 
2009-07-14 09:35:28 AM  
It's a mixed bag really. On the one hand it should be easier to do the conservatives since they will all be locked up in government prison camps anyway, but getting hold of their tiny little balls might make the operation itself tricky.

She really does hate us though.

Sad, isn't it?

It's not like it says it right at the top of the page. Oh wait...

The political environment is such that there is a segment of the populace that will jump up and grab hold of anything that is even remotely critical of people that disagree with them, no matter how ridiculous. I blame political talk radio for nurturing this because of their hyperbolic rhetoric and the demonstrably false allegations that they level every day as fact.

If you don't think it's satire immediately upon looking at that page, where there is an ad for a book called "Zombies Ate My Headline" and links to articles entitled "Abraham Zapruder Lured Out of Retirement to Film Oreo Commercial" and then right at the very top of the page, the title of the website is book-ended by the phrases "News Unencumbered but the Facts" and "Proud Publishers of Fake News Since 2005" or if you think that anyone with the sense God gave a bag of gravel would not recognize that it is an obvious joke after reading that site for ten seconds, I really don't know what to tell you. I think some people's sensitivities are a touch too delicate these days.

The only people I see taking this even remotely seriously in this thread are not people who think it's true, but people terrified that somewhere out there, someone might construe this is true.

I know The Hon. Judge Rufus Peckham, so I'm really getting a kick &c.

Gay males should be exempted. But they may come in handy in disposal of said castrated doodles.

This thread is funnier than the article.

Uh oh, is this going to go green?

Hay admins, you can call this fascist to help balance the PITA! That would be pretty awesome and not retarded at all!

And this is going to go green. I'm waiting for a Republican apologist to scream in here about how true this is.

I used to run a news satire site. It was called The Fake News. There is a box at the top of the page that said Satire. People still thought some of the stories were serious. My friend ran a site whose logo was his head poking out of a toilet (funny, not sick). People still thought some of his stories were real.

"I want to be perfectly clear about this next comment so that there is no mistaking my words to mean something other than what they plainly say: the time has come to end white male oppression by castrating every white male until they are no longer dominant in Western culture. That means forcible removal of their testicles. I realize the brutality of my comment, and I don't know how to say it more clearly."

Gosh, what a nice lady.
 
2009-07-14 10:13:53 AM  
Yep, the last few comments here show that only the libs are taking this seriously.

The same libs who are also terrified of Palin, no doubt.

You're not helping. In fact, I suspect you are intentionally not helping. J'accuse!

I've got a bad feeling about this.

Yeah, usually you microwave those things first.

Thanks, I could use some relaxation. Been really tense lately. Hot jets of water are just what the doctor ordered!

While satire, I think Sotomayor is thinking about chopping off Senator Sessions' nuts right about.....now.
 
2009-07-14 10:25:59 AM  
Seriously?! Some people are so dumb that they need Snopes to convince them that she didn't really say that?!?!

I really hope this comes up in today's hearings though.

Actually, the stimulus has earmarks for magnifying glasses and tiny, tiny scissors, so we should be fine.

It's all a ploy -- now when they announce the Mandatory Gay Marriage Act of 2010, you'll be all "Phew! Sure they sent me to live on an alpaca farm with the guy who played the 'Fonzie' on 'Head of the Class' but at least I still have my junk intact for the nightly Albanian Porcupine!"

Bingo.

Let's not pretend like Santomeyer saying something like this is completely out of the realm of possibility. She obviously hates men - at least firemen - and her face looks funny.

Indeed. You should try my Irish Baby Pie. It's delicious.

If this *does* get mentioned in the hearings... why I just might have to buy Drew a beer...

Just for the awesomeness factor and all..

I have a bag of tortilla chips, a jar of salsa and a 12-pack of Heineken (its not Guinness, but its what they had on the shelf), so I'm ready.

I can't wait for the "SHE REALLY DID SAY IT AND I HAVE GRAINY, ZOOMED-IN FILM AS EVIDENCE!" crowd to come in.
