...I am genuinely conflicted by this:

Facebook Is Marking Fake Stories As “Satirical” As Too Many People Think The Onion Is Real
I am both "are you fucking kidding me?!" and trying to deal with the definite possibility that... honestly... given the number of times I've had to tell people either "IT'S THE ONION" or "THE ONION IS NOT THE ONLY SATIRE SITE ON THE INTERNET, THIS IS SATIRE" ... it's maybe a good idea.

I do not have enough headdesks or facepalms in my world to resolve this conundrum.

The first thing this reminds me of is the little notes by the translation software in A Fire Upon The Deep, like "probable insult".
