On November 6, 2012 the site published a satirical article claiming that former president George W. Bush had accidentally voted for Barack Obama because he couldn't figure out how to properly use his voting machine.[7] The article was reported as fact by news outlets in Texas,[8] 'went viral' on the internet,[9][10] and appeared on the website of La Repubblica, Italy's largest national newspaper.[11]

Todd Akin hoax[edit]

Another story to receive wide publicity and belief was 'Todd Akin Claims Breastmilk Cures Homosexuality', attributing beliefs to the conservative US congressman Todd Akin.[12] The article was widely shared on social media, with many people believing it was true.[13]

'Paul Krugman Declares Personal Bankruptcy'[edit]

'Message from God on Mars'[edit]

Viral e-mails and Facebook posts claimed in 2013 that NASA's Curiosity rover had found gigantic stone tablets in a cave near Aeolis Mons that were marked with the Ten Commandments and the phrase 'I Am Real'. However, this was a hoax that originated as a satirical Daily Currant article.[18]

'Marijuana Overdoses Kill 37 in Colorado on First Day of Legalization'[edit]

A story concocted shortly after recreational marijuana became purchasable in Colorado claimed that 37 people had died of marijuana overdose thus far, with the death toll expected to reach as high as 300 by the following week. The article contained numerous references to fictional characters including one to Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman.
