Suing for Being Ugly!?

A Californian woman is allegedly suing her own parents because she is ugly!

Ugly woman

At least that is what the article claims... It is hilarious and plays into our biases about people from the USA to be litigious and generally a bit weird.

Alas, it is fake news. Or to be painfully correct: Satire. On their disclaimer page they do admit:

WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle.

which pretty much gives the game away: It is a satire news web site. just like The Onion: funny if you accept it is satire, horrifying if you take it as fact...

But at least it made me smile :-)
