When making the Boobies is important to be witty, smart, funny or sarcastic. This post is nice of those.

Yeah, you probably shouldn't get your information from social media. Even our MSM should taken with big rocks of salt.

Can't always rely on the media. That along with social media needs to be more informational, fair, and/or balanced.

That would be a fun idea.  Have COVID surveys linked from multiple sites, and then lists different sites in order of decreasing knowledge about COVID.  We could see how much about COVID is actually known on Fark, vs MSNBC, CNN, Fox, etc.

Depending on the questions, you could even see which sites have more paranoia about the virus vs others, vs actually working solutions.
