As Scott Adams says, one-third of humans do not have a sense of humor.

The creator of the site once called the New Testament an abortion or aberration.

It was a long time ago and I dont remember which word but it was a real slight.

I’ve heard it all now.

I read that Babylon Bee article and not once did I mistake it for news of the real event. Nor would anyone with a brain.

Liberals are humorless drones.

I follow the Bee on Twitter - they’ve been having a field day with this, mocking the inept Snopes every chance they get.
They are hilarious.

Can’t spell Snopes without NOPE. They’ve been carrying the Democrats’ water from the beginning. People used to say, “But you can trust them for non-political fact-checks!” I wouldn’t use them to fact-check if water is wet.

I was wondering why the Babylon Bee was ripping on Snopes today. They had several articles that were mockingly ‘fact checked’ by Snopes.
I didn’t realize that Snopes had been their typical jerky selfs when ‘fact checking’ a Babylon Bee satire piece.
The Babylon Bee is always worth a read for a chuckle. Snopes is not worth much of anything as it comes across as screeds written by lefties with a broom stuck up their arses.

The thought of fact checking satire is in and of itself funny. Maybe Snopes should fact check Gullivers Travels while they are at it.

My hubby does not understand sarcasm unless explained to him and then he doesn’t understand the purpose. He often says, is this sarcasm.
