The same reason they greenlight crap like this

http://www.fark.com/comments/8615599/-16-optical-illusions-that-are- mo re-fun-than-that-damn-dress/

Note the headline submitted is the same headline as the "article", which is just a revenue generating click through to get to the same old tired optical illusions that have been posted over and over.

I'm sorry, on what site, outside of fark, did a news article run a story about Scott Walker with the headline as a parody of a song from an offbeat teen movie from ~2005?

I'm just saying, the quality of Fark greenlights is pretty crappy as of late. Hell, they even have a repeat on the list above.
