Question 8 (the urine test one) doesn't link to the original headline like all the other's do. I was sure the penis enlargement one was the correct answer, so I wanted to see the correct one.

The urine test one was a "which one was NOT a headline on Fark this week" question. And those should have the other two on it for reference, I agree.

Despite having answered the question correctly (lucky guess) I did not see the article on the naked ladies rowing their boat. Any chance it was on the Video page??

/Nah, I didn't think so.

Goddamnit. Once again a harsh lesson in the Universal Truth of Fark: If you gotta guess, guess weirdest.

Thanks, you bastards.

Lots of people have made that mistake. It's a completely trick question and not fair by any standards of decency. Also, 6938867, 6938963

You TF folks have ruined me! I got a perfect score a couple of weeks ago cuz all I could read was the lite page. Now that I've got TFD, I barely got 50% correct. Just sayin'......

I have to give props to the people who make up the fake headlines in the news quiz.
