Sorely Mistaken People Not Getting Satire

Even though satirical news has been around for decades, people still have a really hard time parsing out fact from fiction. Sometimes they'll write-off a absurdly funny headline as fake news. Other times they'll react with appropriate shock after reading a "report" that the gates of hell have been opened. It's funny, but also kinda really disappointing when sadly mistaken people don't understand satire.

Ridiculous and Disappointing Times Satire Went Over People's Heads

Satire can go over people's heads. Some folks seem to have a really hard time figuring out the difference between real news and obvious, absurd joke news. Sometimes it's funny when someone is ignorant enough to believe millions of people died on Black Friday, but when people refuse to see the jokes or think that it was made to deceive them, it's gets into the territory of "kind of upsetting."

Someone is putting cowboy hats on pigeons in Las Vegas. The main three questions are "who" as well as "why" but possibly the biggest mystery is "how do you get a pigeon to wear a cowboy hat?" Hopefully it doesn't hurt them.

News people have a ton of cues and time spent on live TV, so they're routinely guilty of on-air mistakes. In this case, that mistake was the classic "I so pale."

Described as vinegar-ey but without reportedly containing any vinegar, Leslie Horton's artichoke dip went horribly wrong. She admitted it, but for some reason still brought it in to share. And they still ate it. And they paid for it. Not a good look.

Funny and Sad Times Satire Went Way Over People's Heads

Either these people didn't want to get the joke and decided these insane headlines were "fake news" or they thought they were completely true and responded in kind. Makes you feel sad about people's inability to differentiate obvious satire from actual news, but it is pretty funny. Mistaken people don't understand satire kind of a lot.

Gotta love that mention of "The Next Bill Gates?" It's been over a decade and sadly we haven't heard of Episoft. It's fine and dandy to build your own computer using old parts, and you can't knock them for ambition, but the way he talks about phoenixes rising from ashes is just awesome. You can expect a lot from a slow news day in Maine.
