Here we go again. Really, do I need to say more? Another fucking case of people looking at obvious satire and taking it as news. But the people in question here are Fox Nation!

Come on. The disclaimer says

All content on this site, being a mixture of parody, satire, and lame humor, is for entertainment purposes only. If any content is found to be offensive or objectionable in any way, please accept our apologies … but we also suggest that you get a life.

It doesn’t get much more hit-you-on-the-head-with-an-anvil obvious than that.

I understand being taken in by the headline. It would have been a damn fine story if it were true. But a nose for what is bullshit and half a second’s worth of research would have told you all you needed to know.
