But my cousin's nephew's roommate's sister shared it on Facebook, it must be true!

Well, unless you get a bowl of ramen with the top of somebody’s finger in it, as happened a few months ago, of course.

True or not, it's a damn scary thought.

You mean "worldtruth.tv" is not a reputable news site?

True or not, it's a damn scary thought.

As is the thought of a witch abducting two German children in the forest and eating them.

Or, a wolf disguised as an old woman killing the real old woman and her granddaughter.

But, I don't worry too much about those happening either.

I remember hearing people talking about this awhile ago and was amazed that anyone would think it's a true story, the fact that the bloody embassy has to make a statement shows you how far we've fallen...

But... but I thought they shoved her in the oven, stole her treasure, escaped and lived happily ever after.

Are you saying they all lied to me?

Some people are too stupid to have access to the internet.

In 2012 Mao Sugiyama, 22, who is asexual, had voluntarily undergone surgery to have his genitals removed which he took home frozen and later served them to diners at ¥20,000 a head.

This was a big internet hoax a few years ago:

Of course it was sheer nonsense.

But is this fake news:?

Not that being a cannibal seems to bother Japanese authorities. This dude killed and ate a Dutch woman and is now living in public housing in Japan.

Yes, but did he serve them correctly with fava beans and a nice Chianti? Or was it Pocky and a beaujolais nouveau?

I will no longer be cursing people anywhere in the world with the phrase, "bite me". It may be falsely interpreted as consent!

Trump must read such news sources. Now I understand why he would only eat Mac burgers here.

I really miss the times when the news were made by real journalists, not random people from Facebook.

You can stop faked and hoax story on the Internet and even the International News Agency like BBC, CNN, AP and Reuters are publishing faked and hoax story for promoting to sell their news.

You would think people would be smarter but nope, people automatically take as gospel 'facts' they read online.

What's next? News about restaurants offering dog or cat meat on the menu?

Another ridicules, unverified story being passed along by morons using the internet.

It's OK to ask questions. It's OK to ask for clarification. I expect the news media outlets to do a better job of verifying their stories BEFORE they publish their chosen stories.
