Newsfail Quick Hits (December 2017)

4 Dec

December 4, 2017

The news media is a huge industry. Think of all the stories that appear in all the newscasts, all the websites, all the print media, etc etc etc. Not every story will make perfect sense, nor will every story be well-written or even get to the heart of the matter. Here are a few quick examples.

Let Go is like eBay, except that it doesn’t involve shipping. It is up to the parties involved to coordinate an exchange. In other words, it is a site where strangers set up meetings where one brings money and the other may or may not kill them for that money. What can possibly go wrong? I think that’s the real story here.

 

Star WARS.
The Force is from Star Wars, not Star Trek.

By now you’d think a writer working on a major New York newspaper and reporting on entertainment and media would know the difference. That’s a total fail.

 

This next one is not really a failure. In fact, this may be very clever. 

The article doesn’t mention where or how she was smuggling the baloney until the second paragraph, where it also contains the phrase “sausage smuggling,” which is probably not something you should google from work. 

By the way, she hid bologna under the floor mats of her car. I have no idea what you may have been thinking.

 

So how many times did she give birth outside the US?

Thanksgiving Episode V: The Turkeys Strike Back

November 27, 2016

Turkeys. How can something so tasty and delicious be so violent and angry? (I could ask the same question of my ex-girlfriend, but I digress.)

We’ve just celebrated another Thanksgiving, but before the weekend is over, we must also bow our heads and pay respect to those who are still fighting the battle.

That is one angry turkey. And wouldn’t you be? Thanksgiving is a horror show for them. And speaking of horror shows, The Walking Dead has it wrong. We shouldn’t be worried about the zombie apocalypse, the turkey apocalypse is already upon us. I’ve written about turkey terror before. Here’s another news story that proves that we must never let our guard down when it comes to this flightless plague.

It’s not over! ROUND TWO!
