this is at its best when it's not trying to be the onion and just spouts un-absurd weird falsehoods like the Pomeranian Extinction.

I'm going to ponder that for a little while.

I love this site. It's my new favorite site for absurdities and lies. I can quit reading Drudge now.

Somebody really ought to make a lie site that doesn't tell you it's a lie site. Preferably one that masquerades as a legitimate news site, reporting all the same real news as the other ones, but with one egregious falsehood hidden intentionally amongst the truth in each article.

Here is where I state that everything on this blog is a lie, so don't sue me.

Next headline: Giant 800 pound liar paradox escapes from zoo!

Seems that people are tired of reading the truth (or some variation thereof) recently.

I am not going to click that link; for thematic consistency, it must lead to a Rickroll or something.

Wasn't done before, and expertly, by the Weekly World News?

I have not yet failed to undislike one of the posts on Lie Blog.

I think I prefer the snappier untruths of Dave's Web of Lies.

Hey this is like Fox News! HAWHAWHAW!

I lied; it's fun and clever, and thus not at all like Fox News.

One of the google ads for this page is "Is your spouse cheating?"

well, it made me laugh anyway.

This is completely plausible.

Clever but isn't this just a stripped down version of The Onion?

The LIE BLOG is the best and most authoritative source for information on the Long Island Expressway.

The absolutely absurd ones are much better than the theoretically plausible entries.
