I was wondering why the Satire tag wasn't used.

Let's, uh, hope you're wrong about that.

FTA: She then tried to intimidate detectives by uncrossing her legs, but officers explained to the Oscar-nommed actress that no one has wanted to see that since the '90s.

You got to admit that is a good line.

I got an idea for a movie,
and it goes like this
(Check it out) It's about a boy who gets his finger caught
In a bottle of Mr. Pibb

And they go on adventures,
I think it could be big
Is it too soon to whisper Oscar?
Put a happy ending there and it'll write itself, I swear
All we need, all we need, are some meetings and a lead

I got an idea for a movie,
It's about this guy
Who wished and wished 'til it came true,
And now this kid can fly

I got an idea for a movie,
and here's my pitch
I get a job and quit my band,
And you stop being a biatch

And we will have adventures,
Like the boy and his bottle did
Is it too soon to whisper Oscar?

Put a happy ending there and it'll write itself, I swear
All we need, all we need, are some meetings and a lead
With a happy ending there this thing will write itself, I swear
All we need, all we need, is some trick photography

I forgot one thing about the guy
Who gained the ability to fly
It was actually only for a foot or two
And only an inch or high

Maybe Rebecca Romijn can star, and Brian De Palma can write and direct.

/almost 3AM here, I must be tired... gonna get some zzz's and re-read the article tomorrow.

Started reading, then my game of Black Ops 2 started and had to stop, had a full on conversation about how they think Sharon Stone was the thief.  Finished the game exited the lobby and read the article.  I'm not sure if I feel like a fool or if I'm mildly entertained that I reported this as fact.

The obvious answer is to claim credit if it actually gets...

gets.

Do we have a noun for "People report satire as if it were true"? Should it be "Onioned"?

I'm guessing Sharon Stone is just happy to be talked about in the press again....

*waves*


Hi Sharon!!!

Ha, got me, Subby! It was obvious by the second sentence, but good fun just the same.

Why is Sharon Stone at Cannes, anyway?

I have no doubt that she is capable of snatching the jewels. Female prisoners do it all the time to hide contraband.

And we're talking about Sharon 'Pause-Freeze Frame-No-Panties' Stone here.

Hmm ... there was a movie, Willis and Poitier (?), but I don't remember a jewel heist in it. Then again, I don't know if I saw it or just read about it. Ever do that? Think you saw a movie that you didn't really see?

OK, off to google.
 
2013-06-02 05:40:01 AM  
Obviously fooled Yahoo news.  The main question should be, "How?"  No snark or satire tag, although most readers would have figured it out by the second sentence.
 
2013-06-02 05:41:26 AM  
And because there was no snark or satire tag, lawsuit in 3...2...1...

Not sure if you're trolling or just no smarter than the people who thought the story was real.

Is this satire? They checked her IMDb page and saw she hasn't done a movie in a while? That's the dumbest farking thing I think I've ever heard.

/That's some fine police work, Pierre.

If you can't tell from TFA, maybe you should read the thread.

She then tried to intimidate detectives by uncrossing her legs, but officers explained to the Oscar-nommed [sic] actress that no one has wanted to see that since the '90s.

Comedy gold!

The amount of people who are responding like this is real disturbs me greatly.

she has not been in a movie in a long time.

You want to be more disturbed? Think of it this way.

Not only are people thinking this is a fact based article, they are so sure it is they commenting on it, not just reading it and thinking "wow that's messed up".

These are the same people that read ridiculously false "real" news from sources like FOX. CNN, and MSNBC and take EVERYTHING they hear from there as gospel.

THAT is what really scares me. People see a huge name and think the most blatantly false things are true. Everyone saw the link was from Yahoo and assumed it had to be real.

But then again ignorance like this has been around since we have existed as a species.......so w/e

NO, that's Allison Janney

The only person whiter than Bradley Whitford is Rob Lowe.
