This Week In Review #13


We here at the Daily Bungle wish to provide a public service by testing our readers to see how well they can differentiate fake news from real news. This week, we're switching things up a bit. Three of the following stories are fake, but two are real. Can you tell the real deals from the not-so-real ones?

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.

This week’s selection is going to be super easy if you’re a fan of Radio Dead Air and have watched their latest episode.

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.

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.
