No Fauxing Sense of Humor

The League of Liberals has a pointer to a hilarious item on WTF Is It Now: Maru notes that Fox News threatened a lawsuit against Fox Television over a parody of the channel’s ubiquitous crawling news ticker on the animated comedy show “The Simpsons.”

Don't have a cow, Fox. Here is what the faux crawl said: “POINTLESS NEWS CRAWLS UP 37 PERCENT … DO DEMOCRATS CAUSE CANCER? FIND OUT AT FOXNEWS.COM … RUPERT MURDOCH: TERRIFIC DANCER … DOW DOWN 5000 POINTS … STUDY: 92 PERCENT OF DEMOCRATS ARE GAY … JFK POSTHUMOUSLY JOINS REPUBLICAN PARTY … OIL SLICKS FOUND TO KEEP SEALS YOUNG, SUPPLE … DAN QUALYE: AWESOME … ASHCROFT DECLARES BREAST OF CHICKEN SANDWICH “OBSCENE” … HILLARY CLINTON EMBARRASSES SELF, NATION … BIBLE SAYS JESUS FAVORED CAPITAL-GAINS CUT … STAY TUNED FOR HANNITY AND IDIOT … ONLY DORKS WATCH CNN … JIMMY CARTER: OLD, WRINKLY, USELESS … BRAD PITT + ALBERT EINSTEIN = DICK CHENEY … RIGHT WING OF CHICKEN”

It’s called humor, folks! Apparently, the Rupert Murdoch right-wing network did learn something from its embarrassing Al Franken situation — it has decided not to proceed with court action. But it did warn producers not to use the ticker anymore because it might “confuse the viewers.” As if.
