Disney XD Airs Game Of Thrones


Game Of Thrones To Air Censored On Disney XD

The hit fantasy television drama infamous for its blood, gore, and tits will start airing a bloodless, gore-less, and tit-less syndicated version on Disney XD.

Daily Bungle

Tyrion Lannister, as played by Peter Dinklage, will soon be gaining more fans now that the television drama he's most famous for starring in will be expanding its audience through syndication.

The Disney–ABC Television Group recently entered into a partnership with Home Box Office (HBO) to acquire the syndication rights for Game of Thrones, with plans to broadcast the series on its cable channel, Disney XD.

The decision to acquire the award-winning television drama was inspired by the recent success of Doctor Who, which has been airing its David Tennant seasons on the company’s pre-teen-oriented channel, Disney XD.

This would not be the first time that HBO has allowed its more popular television series to air on other channels, as series such as Sex and the City, Entourage, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, currently air in syndication.

However, this will be the first time that a family-friendly channel will air one of its more not-so-family-friendly series. As such, the syndicated version of Game of Thrones will be highly-edited and censored to meet Disney’s squeaky-clean standards.

Daily Bungle Newsroom Returns


Daily Bungle Newsroom Returns From Dystopian Trump Future

Newsroom returns from 50 years into the future where Donald Trump became president.

Tom Broken
Daily Bungle

The Daily Bungle newsroom building has returned nearly one month after having mysteriously vanished without a trace.

Though its staff members, who had disappeared along with the building, have all returned safely, according to their accounts, they barely managed to return from what they call a distant future where Donald Trump became president.

The newsroom vanished nearly one month ago after one of the news reporters brought back a crystal skull that he found within a southwest town in order to examine for a news story.

The entire newsroom and its staff, save for one intern who was out on a donut and coffee run, had disappeared from its physical location without a trace. The intern has since been reimbursed for the coffee and donuts.

Though local scientists and psychics had been contacted during the time of the newsroom’s absence, none were able to offer a proper explanation, either natural or supernatural, for its disappearance and recent reappearance, though most had speculated the cause to be the mysterious crystal skull.

While the recently-returned staff members also lack an explanation for how the newsroom disappeared, they have been able to confirm where—or rather, when—they disappeared to.

Newsroom disappears while intern is left holding donuts and coffee.

Tom Broken
Daily Bungle

The Daily Bungle newsroom building has vanished and is not expected to reappear until after Halloween.

In a scene that seems to have been ripped right out of a supernatural thriller, the entire building that serves as the Daily Bungle headquarters has disappeared without a trace.

The only remaining employees were those who were absent that day and one newsroom intern who had left on a coffee and donut run.

The intern, who wishes to remain anonymous, claimed that he saw one of the reporters inspecting a human skull with turquoise gems within its eye sockets when he had left for his errand.

The skull had been retrieved from an abandoned Indian burial ground located in a southwest town called Night Vale, and was being studied by the reporter for an upcoming news feature on ancient Native American artifacts, the intern claimed

Corrupt Lawyer To Provide His Own Legal Defense


Corrupt Lawyer To Provide His Own Legal Defense

Embezzling lawyer, who will be acting as his own defense, uses embezzled funds to bribe jurors and start public relations campaign against his own trial.

The following article is a guest post from "The World Mud" and has been edited for style and grammar. The original article can be viewed here. For more articles, visit their deviantART page.

A prominent lawyer caught embezzling money from his high-end law firm will appear in court acting as his own lawyer and providing his own legal defense.

Of the long list of lavish items which his company’s embezzled funds were spent on, the convicted lawyer, Slye M. Bau, has rented a penthouse apartment in New York and a beach house in California, financed the abortions of several mistresses and bribed them to not go public, purchased a Ferrari modified with various gold details, and deposited the remaining money into offshore bank accounts whose assets are nearly impossible to freeze.

Following the announcement of his court date, Bau has treated many of the jurors to dinner, offered one juror with high-end Cuban cigars smuggled out of Cuba, used his extensive connections within the corporate world to score another juror a promotion, and given $100,000 dollars to all other jurors.

Bau has also hired the public relations services of a well-known conspiracy theory-making political figure to suggest that this trial was a ploy for a politically-motivated disbarment of the lawyer, who was disbarred and fired for helping regular people win legal battles against big corporations.

Sweet Tea Banned From University Of Georgia


Sweet Tea, Cotton Products Banned From University Of Georgia

University students no longer permitted to sip tea or wear cotton due to “racial connotations.”

Peter Jesting
Daily Bungle

University of Georgia (UGA) students returning to campus this semester will discover that they won’t be sipping sweet tea, wearing cotton clothing, or taking smoking breaks anytime soon.

That’s because the university has banned sweet tea, cotton and tobacco products from its campus.

Under this ban, sweet tea will no longer be served within the college cafeteria, sold within the campus store, or even be allowed to be brought and consumed on campus by students.

The ban on tobacco products prevents students from smoking cigarettes and chewing tobacco, while the ban on cotton products prevents them from wearing cotton clothing. Administrators have instead recommended that students wear non-cotton based clothing such as polyester or silk.

The ban was discussed and suggested by both the Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council, whom have determined that these products are loosely associated with slavery, and thus have indirect “racial connotations.”

According to their rationale, sweet tea was often consumed by wealthy slave-owning plantation owners, while cotton and tobacco were both picked by African-American slaves working in the fields.

As such, these products have been deemed “racial insensitive” and “inappropriate” by both college administrators and student representatives, whom have decided to ban them in order to maintain healthy racial and cultural relations among the student body.

Libertarians Eat Little Children, Salon Says


Libertarians Eat Little Children, Salon Says

Salon publishes its umpteenth anti-libertarian screed this week—and it’s only Monday!

Walter Crockpot
Daily Bungle

Libertarians steal infants away in the middle of the night to consume their flesh and blood, claims a recent Salon article.

As it was another day that ended in the letter ‘y’, left-wing propaganda mill Salon published yet another anti-libertarian screed, this one making the egregious claim that political libertarians are literally “bloodsucking ghouls.”

The article, “Beware! Libertarians Are Out To Get Your Children!”, warned readers that their young children, especially infants and toddlers, were in mortal danger of being abducted by “socially-liberal and fiscally-conservative” individuals to be used for their own nefarious purposes.

Libertarians usually stole children away during the nights of their political meetings, where they would take the kidnapped children to feast on their flesh, harvest their organs to sell on the black market, and drain their blood to be made into wine and consumed by their corporate masters, the Koch Brothers.

“If you find any of these claims the least big egregious or dubious, don’t!” the opinion piece informed readers. “Political libertarians are soulless grifters whose bloodsucking economic policies prey upon the impoverished as to sustain the wealthy and affluent; therefore, the only logical conclusion to their heartless ideology is for them to literally feast upon the blood of the most vulnerable souls within society, namely our own children.”

Urban Outfitters Prohibits White Customers From Purchasing Urban Clothing


Urban Outfitters Prohibits White Customers From Purchasing Urban Clothing

White customers no longer allowed to “culturally appropriate” clothing in order to “dress black.”

Anderson Pooper-Scooper
Daily Bungle

Privileged suburban white kids who want to dress in baggy clothing and gold chains like Kanye West or Missy Elliot (or, more realistically, like Eminem or Iggy Azalea) will have to shop for their threads somewhere other than Urban Outfitters.

That’s because the nationwide clothing chain has recently passed store policy that will prohibit white customers from purchasing urban clothing.

In news that will make white kids scream, “that’s wack, yo!”, and black people say, “’bout damn time!”, Urban Outfitters has announced that it will no longer be selling baggy pants, doo rags, gold chains, and other urban clothing items to customers other than African-Americans.

White customers will still be allowed to enter and peruse stores across the country, and they will still be allowed to buy clothing not associated with hip-hop culture; however, white female customers wearing dreadlocks may be asked to leave store premises.

World Mud News Briefs #1


Half Of U.S. Prison Population Are Actors, Fox News Says

World Mud

The following new briefs are a guest post from "The World Mud" and has been edited for style and grammar. For more articles, visit their deviantART page.

Fox News recently claimed that half of the U.S. prison population consists of actors hired by the Democratic Party to make American prisons look more overcrowd than they actually are.

Half of all prisoners within American prisons are “actors” hired to blame their “prison terms” on “drug laws” and “institutional racism” in a blatant attempt to make “tough on crime” and other law enforcement policies supported by Republicans look bad, Fox News Host Sean Hannity claimed on his nightly news program last evening.

Hannity then went onto defend the War on Drugs as a bold effort to defend “morality” from liberal Democrats eating away at Christian family values. He also made the bold claim that the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson was a false flag operation orchestrated by the liberal MPAA studios in Hollywood to make American law enforcement look “racist.”

At the end of his revealing expose, Hannity expressed his desire to make illegal the mentioning of America’s per capita prison population.

When asked about the authenticity of these claims, Hannity declined to reveal his sources, and crossed his fingers behind his back as he swore on his grandmother’s tombstone that these claims were not fake talking points he was directed to make through a memo from Rupert Murdoch on behalf of the Koch Brothers.

Local School Bans Homemade Lunches


Local School Bans Homemade Lunches

Students will no longer be allowed to bring their own lunches, as that gives them an "unfair advantage" over students who don't.

Tim Russet Potato
Daily Bungle

School may be out for the summer, but once school doors re-open this fall, students will have to leave their brown paper bags and lunch boxes at home and learn to stomach cafeteria food.

The school board recently approved a controversial measure to ban homemade school lunches, setting cafeteria lunches as the default for all public school students.

This countywide moratorium on homemade lunches will prevent students from bringing their own from home, and instead require them to rely on their school cafeteria for their meals.

The decision to implement this measure was inspired by a new study from Ivory Towers University in England, which claims that students who have their lunches packed by their parents have an “unfair advantage” over those who don’t.

According to the professor who conducted the study, Yorick Khaee, children who eat school lunches prepared by their parents tend to have overall better grades and health, and as such, “unfairly disadvantage” children who have their meals served from the school cafeteria.

“I don’t think parents packing their children lunches should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,” Khaee said.

Rape Victim Triggered By Transgender Woman In Gym Locker Room


Rape Victim Triggered By Transgender Woman In Gym Locker Room

The presence of a naked transgender woman in a locker room caused a former rape victim to experience horrific flashbacks of her past trauma.

Tim Russet Potato
Daily Bungle

Planet Fitness prides itself in offering a “judgement-free zone” where all of its members can feel comfortable, but one local gym faces a dilemma in ensuring that two members feel comfortable, even though the presence of one make the other feel uncomfortable.

A local gym received complaint from a female member, and former rape victim, concerning a transgender woman using the women’s locker room.

The woman who made the complaint (and who declined to provide her name), was a former rape victim who claimed that the transgender woman’s presence in the dressing area made her feel uncomfortable due to her past rape experience.

Planet Fitness offers a "no-judgment" policy which allows members to use whichever locker room best associates with their “gender identity”, which means that members who are biologically male are allowed to use the women’s locker room if they identify as female.

Earlier this year, a Michigan gym expelled a female member after she complained (in an “inappropriate” manner) about a transgender women using the women’s locker room.

However, in the case of this local incident, the gym did not and would not consider revoking the membership of the complaining female member, as they sympathize with her concerns and situation, one gym representative said.

The gym has not yet decided what it would do to facilitate either or both gym members, but has assured that they plan on reaching a compromise.

Safe Spaces Provided For Male Students At Feminist College Speech


Safe Spaces Provided For Male Students At Feminist College Speech

Male college students feel “triggered” by feminist speaker, retreat to “safe spaces” with free beer and pornography.

Katie Incorrect
Daily Bungle

A recent speech by a controversial feminist professor caused male college students to retreat by the droves into male-only “safe spaces” created to safeguard them against any “triggering” and “problematic” comments.

Lodi Breequoes, dean emeritus of gender studies at Farnsworth University (FU), recently gave a speech entitled “Men: What Are They Good For? Absolutely Nothing!” in which she claimed that all men were “potential rapists” indoctrinated by their “patriarchal society” to “hate” and “oppress” women.

While her audience that evening started out with a healthy balance of students from both genders, nearly halfway through her speech, most male, and a few female, students had left.

Male “men’s rights” student activists, prior to the event, has set up male-only “safe spaces” outside the auditorium where the speech was held, offering male students somewhere to retreat to if they felt “triggered” or “threatened” by the female professor’s opposing views.

These safe spaces were furnished with free beer, pizza, chicken wings, Playboy magazines, video games, and a large flatscreen television broadcasting the most recent sports game. At least two dozen male students congregated within these safe spaces during and after the speech.

Prior to the speech, male students had also placed “trigger warning” signs outside of the auditorium, warning students that the speech would contain “misandrist” language.

One photo posted on Twitter showed a male student holding up a sign reading “TRIGGER WARNING: anti-male bashing ahead” and advertising the location of the safe space.

As for the feminist speaker herself, Breequoes merely brushed of the backlash against her speech as a symptom of “male entitlement”, calling the male students “neo-reactionary chauvinists” who were shedding “male tears” over the loss of “white male privilege.”

“Everything that I said during my speech were merely the mainstream views held by modern feminists, and if a few immature boys get upset over it, then it’s only because of their unearned white straight cis-gendered male privilege,” Breequoes said.

Woman Enjoys Normal Fast Food Meal

No complaints were to be made when one female customer had lunch at a local Burger King.

A local woman entered a fast food restaurant yesterday expecting to enjoy a normal meal. And she did.

Jane Playne went to the Burger King across the street from her workplace, where she has lunch at least once a week, and ordered a Whopper Jr. with fries and a drink.

Upon receiving her meal, she took it to her table and noticed that there was nothing unusual about her food.

Her drink did not contain a human hair.

Her fries did not have a severed, bloody finger.

And her hamburger did not have any spit or semen or any other bodily fluid in it.

Al Beno and his family had expected a normal meal when they decided to try out a new restaurant, Shaniqua’s Place.

At first, their overall experience seemed satisfactory enough. The food was cooked to perfection, the service was hospitable, and the prices seemed reasonable—that is, until it came time to actually pay.

After paying for his family’s meal, Beno examined his restaurant bill more closely and discovered that his total had been increased though several additional fees.

Aside from the price, sales tax, and gratuity, his tab also included a “privilege surcharge” with a friendly reminder at the bottom for him to “check your privilege.”

When he inquired about this surcharge, he discovered that the restaurant levied an additional sliding-scale fee that varies based upon the customer's race and gender.

The U.S. and its allies have announced a plan to confine ISIS by surrounding the territory of the Islamic State with various pork products.

The pork will be airdropped by various air forces around ISIL territory, military officials have disclosed.

According to the Koran, pork is an "unclean" product which Muslims are forbidden to touch, let alone consume; thus the proposed pork barrier will exploit the Islamic restriction against pork to fence in the radical Muslims.

After ISIS has been fenced in by pork products such as bacon and ribs, the pork barrier will be updated to shrink their territory into more manageable sizes, containing within their own territory, and allowing them to be more easily bombed from the air.

When ISIS defenses have been weakened and eliminated, the pork fence will be removed, allowing the remainder of the Middle East to reclaim their territories from these radicals.

Free College For Students Who Visit Cuba, Venezuela


Free College For Students Who Visit Cuba, Venezuela

Obama proposes free college tuition for students who study abroad in Cuba or Venezuela.

Moron Dowd
Daily Bungle

In a bold move to combine his efforts to provide free college and improve U.S.-Cuban relations, President Barack Obama has proposed free college for students who study abroad in Cuba or Venezuela.

Under his proposed cultural exchange program, eligible students would receive one year of free college tuition in exchange for spending the three months of their summer college break visiting either Cuba or Venezuela.

"Education should be much more than simply reading books," Obama said. "A well-rounded education should also provide opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures."

However, potential college students should not expect their travels to be a glamorous beachside vacation at a luxurious five-star resort. Instead, their visit to either country will entail volunteer work in humanitarian efforts while residing in the same living conditions of low-income, lower-class families.

The weed first became noticeable last July and had since stopped growing in November, yet for reasons unknown, it cannot be killed or even moved, one high-ranking military official stated.

The plant species of this weed has yet to be identified, but Pentagon officials have described it as a mix between kudzu and “that monster alien plant in B-movies that end up taking over the world.”

Pentagon custodial staff claimed they have tried all methods, both conventional and unconventional, to remove the weed, but all their attempts have proven futile.

Marvel Turns Incredible Hulk Into Potato, Re-Imagines Other Avengers

Thor's a woman. Captain America's black. Other Avengers will now be pointlessly changed.

Lyan Williams
Daily Bungle

The remaining Avengers cast is expected to receive the same pointless re-imaginings as have been received by Captain America and Thor, Marvel Comics announced in a press release last week.

Two Avengers characters had previously received makeovers, with Thor being turned into a woman, and Captain America turned into an African-American. Now the rest of the Avengers will follow suit and receive their own makeovers.

These proposed changes include turning Spider-man into an actual spider, turning Iron Man into a trashcan, turning Hawkeye into a unicorn, and turning the Incredible Hulk into a potato.

“That may sound ridiculous, but if we can get away with marketing a movie starring a talking gun-happy raccoon, then we can get away with turning the Hulk into a vegetable,” Marvel Comics Public Relations Manager Kor Presuit said in a phone interview. “Besides, green potatoes can be quite menacing if you eat them.”

Next Equestria Girls Movie To Be Rated NC-17


The following article is a guest post from "The World Mud" and has been edited for style and grammar. The original article can be viewed here. For more articles, visit their deviantART page here.

The brony community announced victory with Hasbro after having extensively petitioned the company to lobby the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to rate the next "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls" movie NC-17.

This rating means that no one under the age of 18 can be admitted into the movie even with adult supervision, which will ensure that little girls and their parents will not have to ask the awkward question of why there are so many grown men watching a little girl’s movie in the theater.

"The World Mud" has interviewed one 13-year-old boy who sneaked into a movie theater to see a NC-17 rated movie, and was extremely shocked to find so many grown men watching a little girl’s movie. He was later kicked out of the theater after loudly exclaiming homophobic slurs.

Michelle Obama Approves Fake Sprinkles Ban


Michelle Obama Approves Fake Sprinkles Ban

First Lady on the fake federal ban on sprinkles: “Why didn’t I think of that?!”

Katie Incorrect
Daily Bungle

Contrary to media hysteria, the federal government is not trying to ban sprinkles; however, this hasn’t stopped anti-junk food proponents from voicing their support for this fake ban.

Last year came to an end, not with a bang but a whimper, when news of a potential ban on sprinkles was reported by right-wing news outlets such as Fox News and Breitbart.

The alleged sprinkle ban was attributed to new federal regulations limiting the use of partially-hydrogenated oils (PHOs), a major source of trans fats, which is commonly used in sprinkles and other food items.

While these regulations would indeed limit the use of a common ingredient found within sprinkles, it would not limit or even ban sprinkles themselves, as most major manufacturers no longer use PHOs to make sprinkles, while popular restaurant chains such as Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme have eliminated trans fats from their donuts and other products altogether.

Furthermore, the news outlets reporting on this alleged ban have cited as a source an article revealed to be satire written on a satirical news blog, The Arizona Conservative.

However, even though this federal sprinkles ban has been revealed to be a hoax, many anti-junk food politicians and proponents have voiced their support for it.
