Bush takes Ecstacy and attends rave "He was jumping around, blowing a whistle, and kept asking me if I had any chewy," says Alison, 19, who danced with the President and his team of advisors at an unnamed club until 4am.

Sorry. That was really snarky of me. Of course, what I meant to say was: the Google logo is not quite in the right font.

Funny, but the Onion still does it better.
And they ripped off the Bush/XTC gag from that old Comedy Central show "That's my Bush!".

Both, just as it should be. All perfectly legal, nobody wants any. Seems like you could have parsed that one.

This was really funny when it was an episode of "That's My Bush", too.

Which it was, a long, long time ago.

You can make your own funny headlines too. Take one from A, one from B.

The Pope
Alan Greenspan
Madeleine Albright
William Rehnquist
Hillary Clinton
Marlon Brando

Goes bungee jumping
Slam dunks a basketball
Goes line-dancing
Surfs a gnarly wave
Does a keg stand
Eats a block of cheese like an apple

There you go. Literally dozens of possibilities for future internet fake news humor.

Prescription drugs, inkjet toner cartridges, and hot XXX sex with Czech teens to be given away free in an attempt to stem the flow of spam.

I liked it. I'm actually so famished for good news that I read it all, ravenously, like a starving man eating a rubber chicken.

XTC is confusing, it sounds like the old 80s band. I thought everyone'd picked up the britishism by now. eg: Oy! mates! wanna bosh a load of e?

"M25 to be turned into flower garden" dates back to at least late 2001. (there's a self-post on Google Groups with defunct link to filepile GIF).

Not sure if it was McCandless' original gag.
