The Farkin’ news, on Facebook

06Jul11

When I (grudgingly) joined Facebook last year, one of the things that most surprised me was how much news my friends posted. Actual news news!

But—as interesting as the articles have been—they’ve consistently paled in comparison to my friends’ witty commentaries.

“I wonder how he’ll stay hydrated,” wrote one journalist buddy of the headline Harry Potter star says he no longer drinks.

About the man who was shot after being mistaken for a cougar, another friend wrote, “Maybe he should have skipped the lipstick and high heels.”

“This story deserves the rarest of tags: ironic,” someone wrote when St. Anthony went missing from his case.

“How do people come up with this stuff?” I’ve wondered a hundred times.

Today I got my answer: Fark.com. Half Associated Press, half The Onion, Fark’s motto is, “We don’t make news. We mock it.”

Here are today’s top business headlines:

Finally I can catch up on the news—and maybe get in a good laugh, too!
