Two of these news items really happened. One of them only happened…in our minds. Can you tell which is the fake? The answer is below.
Comedian Ari Teman decided to rent out his New York apartment for a few days via AirBnB, an online apartment-sharing service. He found a man named “David,” who said he was looking to for a place to stay while he attended a friend’s wedding. Teman went through with the deal, but was concerned enough to stop by. And when he did, he discovered that his apartment was being trashed by the attendees of a “XXX Freak Fest Panty Raid Party.” “David” was charging $20 a head, and the attendees had moved furniture, tossed some outside, and ransacked the place. Air BnB has agreed to reimburse the comic more than $20,000 and has also provided him a place to stay while he looks for new digs.
A California woman is so serious about becoming a human Barbie doll, she’s moved beyond plastic surgery (she’s currently on breast enlargement #5, and a size 32JJ) and has begun hypnotherapy sessions in an effort to become more “brainless.” The 38-year-old, who has changed her name to Blondie Bennett, said in an interview, “I just want to be the ultimate Barbie. I actually want to be brainless. I don’t like being human, if that makes sense.” She claims the treatments are working. “I’ve had 20 sessions and I’m already starting to feel ditzy and confused all the time.”
A man in Portland, Oregon, called police when he discovered the prostitute he’d been having intimate relations with, who he’d met at a local drag club, was a man. Earl Walker told the dispatcher, “This [redacted] was [redacted] my [redacted], and it was real nice, but I reached down and she had a [redacted] [unintelligible]. I should have [redacted] known.” Walker told the dispatcher the name of the club where he’d met the prostitute and gave the dispatcher his home address. Twenty minutes later, officers arrived at his home, found the front door open and Walker unconscious on the sofa. He was arrested for solicitation and possession of unlawful prescription drugs.
