Trumpy Bear in time for Christmas, Facebook censoring religious imagery and dead voters still on the electoral rolls: these are the stories flooding our newsfeed this week…but which one of them is actually true?
Each week we sift through the internet in order to discover the truth in the lies. Why? Well, because we hate ourselves. So, did Elon Musk delete Facebook, or what?
Once more we trudge through the mire of Fake News. This week, we find truth caffenated meat, Ellen’s biggest scam ever and Pharrell Williams going meta on Donald J. Trump.
Fake News is the chocolate claw machine at the Leagues Club. You hope for the Toblerone of objective fact, but you invariably end up with the Turkish Delight of abject disappointment.
It’s a fairly notable week in the realm of Fake News, as Donald is buying is friends and pirates are sailing the high internet seas under the Facebook banner.
Once more into the underworld of the internet’s nonsense we go, this week our journey is highlighted by the pervy nature of Facebook’s hack, and the laziest vegan pizza in recorded history.
Fake News is that person that uses the urinal next to you when the bathroom is deserted. That guy. This week, we investigate the relationship between Donald and Aretha and other clickbait nonsense.
It’s a particularly private analysis of Fake News this week, as we examine your intelligence, your lifespan and the size of your breasts. Sorry.
Fake News, you are an odd fellow, but you steam a good ham. This week we attempt to find truth in the Queen’s wardrobe, the American penal system and a chemical warehouse in the Urals. Fun, fun.
Fake News. Why always you. This week we find out if there’s any truth to the Forrest Gump 2 trailer, if cars in Arizona actually melted and why Akon made himself a target for the CIA.
Fake News. Why you always lying? This week, we fact-check Kurt Cobain’s Trump warning, the fake that sued the original and the origins of a rather toxic book.
Fake News, you don’t make a lick of sense. This week we investigate the paranoia of rice that bounces, the pizza pie wedding bouquet and the benefits of hot dog water.
Fake News. You are stupid and I don’t like you and you smell. There’s a distinctly childish tone this week, headlined by outlawed lemonade. Tasty.
Fake News, the boulevard of broken links. This week, a deliveryman delivered street justice, Melania Trump asked Twitter to save her, and coconut water became the lifeblood of us all.
I love the way you lie internet. This week, some dachshunds killed a woman, a woman married a squid and a man didn’t hit the lotto…but imagine if he did.
There’s a distinctive Cronenbergian flavour to our Fake News search this week. So, enjoy the body horror of five-foot tapeworms, hollow athletics and spreading disease.
After Hurricane Harvey swept through Houston, most of the rubbish that lined the streets was rumour, hearsay and outright lies. So, in order to dig up the truth, we’ve brought our sturdiest gumboots.
