    It’s gotten to the stage where satire and actual journalism have blurred into some monstrous entity that I have to do a double take with these things. Its a mad mad mad world.

    Ugh, I’m just about to shame myself but…is any of this actually true? And how on earth was that picture photoshopped? Sadly I don’t keep up with social media so I’m clueless here.
