Greetings and welcome back to another edition of Fark's favorite Headlines of the Week. This is where we look over the past week's headlines and select the ones that made people laugh, chuckle, share, or get odd looks from their coworkers. These headlines are chosen from your voting, so, as always, another reminder to click the thumbs up on links you like, and you might be seeing those links right here next week. Also, since no one reads this blurb anymore, I'll just say that after chicken-sitting for my folks for the past week while they were out of town, I can make an honest assessment that chickens are really, really stupid.

Finally, science has found a way to store my excessive selfies of me posing with McDonald deliveries on my DNA.

The singularity can not be far now.
