Winter Shadow Event - Tainted News!

Recommended Posts

I am late, but here it is!


This is for all those weird news you read every day when you scratch your head or shake your head and think to yourself "What is wrong with the world?". The Tainted News, of a world more mad than you can comprehend, belong here in this thread.

Our local newspaper always have some kind of fake news on April 1. They are sometimes easy to find, sometimes a bit harder. 1996 they invited people to our castle where they would be able to taste the new harepig meat. I don´t think anyone actually showed up. lol


When my parents were younger there were often pranks on the news on April 1. One year they showed how the old ladies in Northern Italy harvested pasta that hung on the trees. Pasta was pretty new here and some actually thought it was true. lol

    • To follow up, Alabama I believe it is, their new law would make it possible for a rape victim aborting their child from said rape to receive a longer prison sentence than the rapist.   Good times Alabama. And people said Christian Sharia Law wasn't a thing.
