    I love the Babylon Bee and The Onion. Always good for a laugh.

    For whatever reason I do not get the Bee on FB any longer but when I did I was often deeply troubled over how many people were freaking out thinking that the articles were real news.

    There were too many times to count when I would hit the reply button just to explain to the stressed individuals exactly what satire is.
    On one occasion, I was accused by a poster of pushing downers because I advised someone to take a chill pill.

    I am glad we still have sites like these. The day we lose our sense of humor is when humanity dies

    Some would say yes, that’s where they are from.
    Others would simply use Bing or Google and enjoy.

    They are satirical "news" sites on the internet.
