Not what I expected

So here's something I found funny on the Postcrossing FB page (I had no idea they had one, but then, I don't do FB...). This postcrosser got a short fluffy article about Postcrossing and herself in a magazine in her native Australia. Oh cool! Okay.



So of course people asked "Which magazine?" and here's the cover of that issue:

Ummmmmmmmmmmm, wow! I want to believe that this is clever photoshop (My cousin's late partner did stuff like this), but I have a strong, bad feeling that this is real. No, no it can't be! Or can it? Everything is all loopy these days, anyway. :-I

Seriously, though? Why don't you move that fracking budgie out of your bedroom? And gee, I wonder why the cops find it suspicious that everyone who marries you die! Is it strictly speaking legal to put someone's picture in a magazine with the label "PURE EVIL?" I have questions!

It's real. An Australian friend of mine confirmed it. I'm sure this is like the sadly missed Weekly World News and few of these articles have any truth to them.

This makes me miss the Weekly World News so much. Theirs had that cryptid/conspiracy/truly weird aspect compared to the reality-TV stuff above.

LOL! I didn't know birds could flatulate. X) That one article sounds like the Black Widow Challenge! I still look back on that with fond memories.

I think I'd be kinda sad if the article about my perfectly normal and harmless hobby turned up in a tabloid.

Birds can't fart, so... yeah, that one is very made-up. :P And as I said above, many of these are Sims headlines in their own way. Like that one challenge where you can only get income from "dates".

Yeah, it makes you wonder if the editorial process was "we ran out of crap stories, do we have a 2-page article about anything?"

Imagine telling your family and friends to buy the magazine for your article... ;)
