New Occasional Series: Glossy News Classics

As one of the very longest running fake news satire outlets of all time, Glossy News has had a lot of classics over the years. From time to time, we will be republishing stories that really stood out.

Clever? Ingenious? Edgy? Buffoonish? Anarchic? Slick, sophisticated, cool? Just good-old-fashioned hilariously convincing?

Or even unconvincing?

By whatever criteria, these are stories that stood out for us, and really shone.

Keep a close eye out for each instalment!

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

It is hard to believe that NFL game will be performed in China. But this is going to happen. It will be for the first time when the U. S. sports league will be played in the China. The game might not get much attention from the people. More importantly, the players will not be that comfortable to play a regular season in the China. As the result, you might not expect much from the NFL betting lines.

Now the teams are preparing for the game. They are focusing more on the work instead of discussing the playing environment. They are planning how they will come back from the China after the game and will prepare themselves for the next trip that might be more challenging. It will be difficult to play a more competitive game after coming back from China. Mark Waller, the vice president of the NFL, told in an interview, their focus is not more on the game in China.

Dan Geddes Video Selection (1/2)

Dan Geddes is a true stalwart not only of Glossy News, but of humor and satire in general. He has done a lot of stand-up comedy, which you can find on his Youtube channel. I’m sure you’re not gonna die of surprise when I tell you that like every single other humorist in the history of satire, without exception, Dan is rather shy and reserved, and never likes to be the first person in the room to break an uncomfortable silence. Even so, I hope he’ll forgive me for introducing these videos to you!

Taxes and Death (And Taxes)

Taxes and death, and the taxation of the cryogenically preserved, as well as robots.

Trump is Right – Proof that the Election is Rigged

Donald Trump has alleged the 2016 presidential election has been rigged against him and that the only possible way he can lose will be because of fraud and collusion. As a noted investigative reporter, I felt it was my journalistic duty to check into these shocking allegations and uncover whether his claims could be substantiated. It turns out Donald Trump is correct. The election IS rigged against him. The proof is extensive and conclusive. Read more Trump is Right – Proof that the Election is Rigged
