is a not-very-subtle satire of The New Web Journalism (currently accepting submissions*) which got a surprising bit of (not good?) publicity by being used as an 'example' in Google's announcement of its Content Farm Blocking Chrome Extension

(C) Googleblogger Matt Cutts used his gold-level medical plan to have his sense of humor surgically removed
As of this posting: TheContentFarm.tumblr.com is the #4 Google search result for "The Content Farm", but #18 for "Content Farm". The PBS report ABOUT Content Farms that was shown at the bottom of the first page for "The Content Farm" in another screenshot is now #12, but #3 for "Content Farm". (I learn something new everyday - I thought Google totally disregarded leading "The"s)
* anyone considering submitting a piece to The Content Farm on "How to Get Google's Attention", get in line.
