Which of these are real headlines, found on the front page of Yahoo, and which are fakes?

--Thai man shares his home with thousands of scorpions

--Online doggy dating: Owner posts personal ad for his dog

First one is real. Wells Fargo did apologize after getting a lot of flack.

Knatolee said...

I fear they are all real.

ChefNick said...

They're all real. Shocking, but true.

But how come "Michael Still Dead, Feared to Become Zombie As In Own Music Video" went under your radar?

Jim Donahue said...

Indeed, all real.

I skipped the MJ story because it was too obviously true.

TootsNYC said...

I believe No. 2, what w/ Euro games.

I believe the doggy dating one.

So that leaves the scorpions and the AIDS ad

So, I would vote that the AIDS ad starring Hitler is the fake.

TootsNYC said...

And now that I real all the comments, I see that they ARE true. (I had a feeling they were, but I TRUSTED you!)

Jim Donahue said...

Hey, I never actually said any were fake--you just inferred it!
