jesus-is-savior.com -

In 2014, we originally marked jesus-is-savior.com as an extreme form of Poe's Law (satire). But that didn't sit well with us. Could jesus-is-savior.com be satire? Or is it something much different?

wunderground.ie -

[Update: It appears the .ie site is completely gone. The other page, wundergroundmusic.com, is still up and running.] Admittedly, this has gotten me a fair couple times, but it is fake. It re-directs to Wunderground Music now. Again, from their Disclaimer page: Wunderground is a fictionalized, satirical publication. Its content should in no way be interpreted as an actual record…



politicalgarbagechute.com -

Televangelist and all-around huckster Pat Robinson has said many silly, stupid, hateful, and downright harmful things. But politicalgarbagechute.com's article on him is satire. Read onward!



tribuneherald.net -

This one is actually easy, simply because the site itself tells us that it’s satirical. Check their Facebook About page and you’ll see — Long Description. Tribune Herald is a satirical publication. So . . . that’s that, right? 😉

Anything with “newstimesdaily.com” affixed to the URL is Clickbait/JokeLink. Anything.



thespeciousreport.com -

The definition of specious: 1. Having the ring of truth or plausibility but actually fallacious: a specious argument. 2. Deceptively attractive. So it’s in the website title.



liberalbias.com -

delightfulknowledge.com -

Delightful Knowledge is only moderately delightful. A couple of their articles, namely, the article “NASA Confirms Earth Will Experience 6 Days of Total Darkness in December 2014!,” cite Huzler.com as a source. Huzler.com has the following disclaimer in their footers: “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satirical entertainment to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.”…



wundergroundmusic.com -

Fake, though funnier than most. A mirror to www.wunderground.ie. From their Disclaimer page: Wunderground is a fictionalized, satirical publication. Its content should in no way be interpreted as an actual record of events, unless a story specifically states that its contents are an actual recording of events.



butthatsnoneofmybusiness.com -

It’s clear that BTNOMB is primarily an entertainment site, filled with the sorts of “juicy” celeb stories that may or may not eventually be proven true — and by the time the gossip is proven, everyone has moved on to the next big story. But are they real? Satire? Or something worse?



thesword.com -

The Sword (NSFW) is real, insofar as the current narrative du jour in today’s gay porn is ‘real.’ It’s a porn blog that “reviews” new porn from various studios, including those that focus on the “straight-for-pay” sort of porn. Is that real? Are they really straight? Well . . . that’s likely a matter of opinion. But it’s not something…

The Telegraph started off as The Daily Telegraph and Courier. It is a broadsheet newspaper — you know, those comically long newspapers, like the Daily Prophet from Harry Potter (minus the animation (for now)) — that is distributed in Great Britain, Ireland, and abroad. It is considered real news, although they have posted various premature obituaries. One such premature obit,…
