No, we don't all need to become hardened cynics, Lynch says.

Oh, look, NPR is trying to start its own hoax.

I tried being a cynic, but found the whole thing pointless.

The comments on the site are amusing and telling.  The butt-hurt NPR liberals used the story to denounce Congress and the 'lies' about Obama. They are running on fumes after this rough year and are desperately fighting on.

What a stupid greenlight.  How about the full article instead?
 
2013-12-29 02:08:07 PM
Three excerpts from someone else's article?  This got a greenlight?  And the fake gay slur/bad tip wasn't an internet hoax.  It was one shiatty person trying to be an AW, and it went viral.

No one is mentioning the Duck Dynasty hoax? You can't tell me it wasn't generated by A&E. Not a single advertiser threatened to pull adverts over it and once the smoke (and outrage of millions taking either side) cleared and became a puff...his "indefinite suspension" was miraculously lifted. Biggest HOAX of 2013. Or...brilliant business decision???? You decide America since you were the ones fooled.

I am perfectly okay with going to one place and seeing one-sentence descriptions to links of a diverse collection of stories, but if you try to put another summary link between them fark you in the farking ass you farking fark.  Right?

I bought the chick with the no tip receipt yarn, briefly.  That was more of a pathological liar hoping people would buy her tale because she is naturally oppressed because she eats pussy.  More of a con than a hoax.  There was money involved.

You are correct. That's why every farker is a 1%er, well hung (for the men), slim and big naturally boobed (for the women), absolutely NO neuroses, perfect in every way.

One guy on my FB feed said she should be flogged because what she was doing wasn't something a decent, normal person would do.

1) thank you
2) I clicked through to her article and you know what? GIVE ME LISTS! Dont give me links in prose you tool.

next she will think that she should center the list, rather than having it left justified.

If you follow the link to the article this NPR piece was based on, it's mentioned.

I actually didn't hear about about half the hoaxes mentioned (there really weren't that many listed).
 
2013-12-29 02:47:28 PM
The hoaxes I fell for:

1) The economic recovery of the U.S.

b) This picture:

Fiery twerking girl, wth? Am i gonna have to google that now?

Seriously, that one totally avoided my radar somehow.

Still a little pissed at the waitress. I bought into it because it's sadly too believable and then to find out it was a cynical con game she was playing was more than a little disheartening.

Great, now I got the Eric the Half a Bee song playing in my head.

i think she might not be really gay, but just has limited options.
