This News Isn't Fake; It Just Seems That Way

Via buzznet.

Journalists are trained to report the news in an unbiased manner, but no matter how they phrase it, every once in awhile a story comes along that is so bizarre that it sounds completely made up. The headlines in this collection are all 100% real while also being soooo outlandish that they're downright hysterical. 

Take a walk on the wild side of the news business and just be glad you're not involved in any of these headlines.

Last But Not Least

Via reddit.

This image isn't so much about the headline as it is about the juxtaposition of stories. Plus, it touches on one of the internet's most favorite pastimes: Making fun of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Isn't it a shame that Kanye is still alive and making music? Just tragic.
