Fake news: The Onion's fake headline about Cleveland's sewer system is actually true - Cleveland 19 News Cleveland, OH

Quote:
The Onion, a website known for writing satirical and comical news stories and headlines, recently published a parody article with the headline "Cleveland Finishes Construction On New Elevated Sewer System."
Can't even count on fake news to be fake anymore.

Young men over-represented in road fatalities in Finland | Yle Uutiset | yle.fi

It's a serious situation, but seriously, is this news to anyone?

Dog poop strains Finland’s urban environments | Yle Uutiset | yle.fi

Quote:
The annual springtime thaw is exposing residual excrement left behind by poo-petrators.
This might be more of a surprise in countries that aren't covered with snow for 4-6 months of the year, but it's common knowledge in Finland.

+1 for "poo-petrators", though :sniggle:

And this was news to me:
