Listen, I've been guilty of reading an Onion story and thinking for a moment that our world has gotten so strange that it could be truth. But I don't go on the teevee referring to "news sources" that also claim 4chan causes teenage boys to masturbate (I'm sorry but like grown men, their penises cause them to masturbate) and that the Xbox Kinect is a terrorist training tool.
