*** The instigator of this claim, Dan Lirette, is a "open-air preacher" (someone who yells religious statements in the parking lot of a Walmart), who cheated on his wife with one of his followers, who he abandoned when she became pregnant. When the baby was born with no brain, the mother snapped and went insane, which is where Something Awful joined the story as someone noticed her blog. There was just as much pity as mockery, since she obviously wasn't well mentally, and when Lirette's involvement, which included such tactful statements as "The baby's not dead until I kick it in the head", was discovered, all the attention and much deserved mockery turned to him. Lowtax wasn't even involved, having moved to a much more hands-off role, until Lirette sent threatening emails to him.

** It's also commonly referred to as "cage fighting" to associate it with dogfighting, implying that the athletes are locked inside the arena and cannot escape from the fight. Of course, this is not true, and many MMA promotions actually take place in modified boxing rings. Some promotions embrace the word, such as World Extreme Cagefighting, to make themselves sound more BadAss.

* [[http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/25/opinion/stanley-eurovision/index.html?hpt=op_t1 This]] CNN.com opinion piece by Timothy Stanley criticizing the EurovisionSongContest. You can immediately tell ThisIsGonnaSuck when the author describes the show as "Europe's version of ''Series/AmericanIdol''". Not only that, he appears to be COMPLETELY misinformed about the qualification process, saying that host nation Azerbaijan shouldn't be participating because it's not in Europe. All that is required is that the country be a member of the European ''Broadcasting Union''.

* [[http://canadiangenocide.nativeweb.org/dia_archives_index.html]]: "April 14, 1939 ... Luminol was an early version of a "rape drug" which induced trances and memory loss in those receiving it." ... Forensic investigators use [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luminol Luminol]] to detect trace amounts of blood at crime scenes. ... But, if they meant ''Luminal'', another name for [[Phenobarbitalhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenobarbital#History Phenobarbital]], well then that's a lot more credible, "Phenobarbital's soporific, sedative and hypnotic properties were well known in 1912".----

* The fanfic ''Fanfic/GarfieldInAlongCameASplut'' has Garfield playing ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' in the opening, which is apparently about [[IAmNotShazam a guy named Metroid]] who fights [[RougeAnglesOfSatin the Mama Bran]] to save the whales. Either he's just started playing or has a bootleg, but Metroid is about a ''woman'' [[SamusIsAGirl named]] ''Samus'', and Metroids are one of many things she hunts, and the villain is Mother Brain, and there are no whales to be found in the series.

Added DiffLines:

** It also had happened with the mexican website El Deforma. Sometimes said site has to acknoledge that, for the sake of comedy. But also it tends to happen that something that one of their news become truth in just mere hours (as surrealistic Mexico is).

* Referring to the internet as "the internets" and similar. Ian Hislop (probably) parodied this with "The [=YouTube=]" on ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou''.
** Derived from this is referring to any website as "the [name of site]", such as "the Twitter". Bonus points for needlessly pluralizing it.
** Parodied in ''TopGear'', with quotes like: "If you are lucky enough to live near an internet, why not visit our website, which you can find at...a computer, probably."
** Toby Keith's song "American Ride" also refers to "the [=YouTube=]".
