    I was wondering. Makes for a good (bad) story though! :tooth:

    'Now8News burst onto the fake news scene in mid-2015, racking up an impressive number of successful social media hoaxes despite the barely plausible premise upon which most were based: a man was arrested for having sex with a pig at Walmart, an obese woman was arrested for starving her kids so she could eat their food, a woman was arrested for "trying on" tampons in an aisle at Walmart, a separate woman was arrested for using a sausage to sexually gratify herself (also at Walmart), a man was found cannibalizing a teen in a Texas haunted house attraction, KFC was busted breeding mutant chickens, and McDonald's closed 17,000 locations because the minimum wage was raised.

    The site was also responsible for rumors that an old lady was arrested making cat fur coats, a man fed his cheating fiancee's remains to her parents, President Obama lowered the age of consent to 13, a lottery winner died after gold-plating his testicles, a couple was busted running a meth lab in the "attic" of a Walmart, hair elastics presented a grave health threat because they were manufactured from used condoms, a sitter discovered a "clown doll" was actually a tiny rapist, a tube of cookie dough "exploded" inside a female shoplifter's body cavity, and finally, that a woman caused a riot after experiencing gastric distress during a round of "vodka butt shots."

    I think the first tip off was the pic of him with Beaver Teeth the far fetched story line, and the the sidebar stories.............those fake news joints can get you going for a few minutes. Human nature to wanna believe what we read.

    For me, the 'tell' was that this was an Arkansas man and not a man from Sheboygan, WI. :jester:

    When I was driving an 18-wheeler in California back in the late 1970's, there was a lady trucker in the Los Angeles area whose CB handle was "Bionic Beaver". Conversations with her were a real experience!
