This Week In Review #44


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. Below are five news stories. Four are fake, but one is real. Can you tell what's satire and what isn’t?

After having successfully (at least in their own opinion) updated classic shows such as Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans for the next generation, Cartoon Network plans on doing the exact same thing for its more modern shows like Adventure Time and Steven Universe.

Both shows have barely been around for a decade, with Adventure Time having aired for six seasons and Steven Universe only approaching its third, and yet the network wants to re-adapt these modern shows for a modern audience.

“Call us cray-cray, but if re-packaging older shows as brand new totes worked for Powerpuff Girls, then how can the same thing not work out by re-packaging new shows as balla new, you know what I’m saying, playa?” asked Cartoon Network president Christina Miller while gesturing in what she assumed were gangsta signs in a sad attempt to not appear over 30 years old.

We here at the Daily Bungle wish to provide a public service by testing our readers to see how well they can differentiate real news from fake news. One of the following news stories is real. The rest are fake. Can you tell the satire from the real deal?

Family Guy To Air Episode Based On The Aristocrats


Family Guy To Air Episode Based On "Aristocrats" Joke

The animated show infamous for lowering the bar for network television wants to lower the bar even further.

What do you get when Peter Griffin and his family visit a talent agency to propose a raunchy new act? The Aristocrats.

That's the premise of an upcoming controversial episode of the equally controversial animated sitcom Family Guy.

The new episode will follow the narrative of the infamously dirty joke, "The Aristocrats", in which a family of five propose a raunchy act to a talent agent.

The act itself is too vulgar to describe in words. Sufficed to say, it contains plenty of bodily fluids, gratuitous sex and nudity, and a shameless ridicule of 9/11 victims.

Creating an episode around such a tasteless joke is controversial enough on its own, but perhaps more so is that this episode is planned to be aired uncensored.

Future Predictions For Trump Or Hillary


Earlier this week, the Boston Globe published a satirical front page for their Sunday Edition in which they featured potential headline stories under a Donald Trump presidency.

In the same spirit, the Daily Bungle would like to offer their predictions for developments under either a Trump or Hillary Clinton presidency. (Because would there really be any difference between either warmongering Wall Street stooge presiding in the White House?)

Here are the top ten things that will most likely occur within the next four to eight years under either Trump or Hillary:

Clinton Proposes Suing Rope Manufacturers For Hanging Suicides


Clinton Proposes Suing Rope Manufacturers For Hanging Suicides

Rope companies that sell rope used in hangings should hang themselves--figuratively speaking, insists Hillary Clinton.

In yet another effort to convince the American people that she cares for them and not for her campaign donations from Wall Street banks, Hillary Clinton claimed she would hold rope manufacturers responsible for suicidal hangings committed by their rope if she were president.

During a political rally last week, Clinton advocated for legislation that would allow family members and friends of suicide victims who have hung themselves to sue the rope manufacturers that sold and distributed the rope used in the hangings.

Clinton’s bold proposal reflects similar legislation currently being pushed by Democrats that would allow victims of gun violence to sue gun manufacturers and dealers for the harm caused by the weapons they manufacture and sell.
