Wow. You really think about penises a lot!

I imagine that people who are in the court of the baker in this case are going to read this article and seriously believe that the couple was asking for a penis-shaped cake. You could emblazon “SATIRE” across the top and bottom of this article, and people still would take this completely seriously.

There were a couple websites that published the “bodies found in barrels on Clinton property!” fake story the other day, and people on the right were passing it along like it was, well, hot cakes. This despite a clear disclaimer on the original publishing website: “We believe that there is nothing more precious than the mind of an aging conservative. Here we gather a boatload of bullhonkey, works of pure satirical fiction, to give the fist-shakers of the world a reason to hate. Reality is often in the eye of the beholder. You won’t find any of it here.”

Yet still, my right-wing friends on facebook were discussing it seriously. There aren’t enough facepalms in the world.

All of this to say, good job. I think this is just satirical enough to make a large swath of readers totally convinced it’s 100% true.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
