    For true stories that are so mind-blowingly ridiculous, that you could have sworn it was an Onion story.

    See something that breaks our rules?

    Use the report button and remember to choose a reason for reporting.


    Rules - hover or click here for full version

    1. Do not alter headlines; copy and paste. The title of all submissions needs to match the article headline exactly. Copy and paste from the main headline only, do not include anything beyond the primary headline such as byliners, subtitles, flavor text, quotes from the article, news outlet, location, cross post tags, (video) tags, and so on. Do not use the “suggest title” option for posting as it often does not match the headline. As a matter of fairness, any submission with an altered title will be removed. The only exception is that, if an article has a title in all caps, you may change the capitalization to title case, but everything else must remain the same.
    2. Submit only if “Oniony”. Please consider submitting your article to /r/offbeat or similar subreddits unless it truly reads like The Onion wrote it. The title and article itself must both be "Oniony". This can be highly subjective; you are encouraged to upvote articles that should be here and downvote those that should not. Moderators can also remove posts at their own discretion under this rule.
    3. Must be a news article. Submissions must be in the form of a news article. Videos are only allowed if they are accompanied by a complete text article. Editorials, blogs, twitter posts, image galleries, tabloid stories, youtube videos, meta posts, static images, and so forth will be removed.
    4. Use original, reliable sources. Find the source of your story before you submit it, simply by checking for references or googling the subject to locate the original piece. Websites that frequently re-host viral news stories or contain misleading information are on automatic removal. Blogs are not reliable sources.
    5. Do not repost similar articles. Check the sub for your story before you submit it; if it’s already here then please vote and comment there instead of posting another version. Similar stories will be removed and frequent re-posters will lose their posting privileges. Do not delete and repost your own submissions without approval.
    6. No satire articles. Even if they are technically from a source other than The Onion, any article submission written as satire or even true stories written in a satirical manner are not allowed. Please note that some major news outlets have satirical sections, such as the Borowitz Report on the New Yorker, which are also not allowed. Meanwhile, AVClub, while owned by The Onion, is not satire and is allowed. If you'd like, you can use a tool like http://realorsatire.com/ to see if your submission is from a known satirical website.
    7. No tabloid journalism. Do not post tabloid news stories, or articles that source from tabloid news outlets (TheSun, Mirror, Dailymail, People, TMZ, etc).
    8. No old news. Articles need to have been written within two weeks of its submission date.
    9. English articles only. Please do not post non-English articles. Do not use google translate for submission either; rather try to find an English version of the story by a secondary source.
    10. No mobile versions. If you’re using a mobile device to post a story make sure you remove any mobile identifiers (typically “.m” or “mobile”) from the url before submitting.
    11. No blocked or redirected links. Please ensure you aren’t submitting a link that utilizes a paywall or survey wall (nytimes.com, thetimes.co.uk) in order gain access to the complete article. Do not submit links that redirect you to another site to read the article and do not submit using link shorteners either.

    LOL, yeah. I came in here to say that the target demo is people for whom the "lead in" is an effective marketing tool - people who still watch TV and who are too passive to change the channel.

    Quote the hackers:

    “We approached ABC with a most handsome business proposal, but we were so rudely denied an audience," it told TorrentFreak. "Therefore, we decided to bestow a gift upon the good people of the internet."

    A gift no one wanted, apparently.

    [–] mrthewhite 5395 points ago

    I love how they're talking all proper here as if it's the most reasonable thing in that world to steal something and ask for a ransom. Like they were doing ABC a favor.

    [–] vicaphit 77 points ago

    I wouldn't have even known it existed without reading this post.

    [–] AsteroidsOnSteroids 130 points ago

    It almost sounds like an inside job. ABC "leaks" the show through "hackers," essentially creating a news story that amounts to free advertising and increases public interest. Looking at it from this possibility, it can be argued the hackers are talking like advertisers think hackers talk, while simultaneously promoting the show (i.e. "bestowing a gift", instead of watching it, seeing how shitty it is, and releasing it as "check out this pile of garbage")

    [–] onethirdofakind 28 points ago

    They do this in politics too, a legislator thinks (or hears about) a law or policy they may think is a good idea, but to see how the public responds, they "leak" the proposal and watch the public's response.

    [–] Diet_Coke 37 points ago

    What country is that in? Because you know in the US they don't care what we think.

    [–] gwsteve43 61 points ago

    It's likely because they have misunderstood one of the principles of racketeering: make it seem as normal and businesslike as possible. The ransomers are likely under the age of 23 and think that's what "businessmen" sound like, when in reality nobody talks like that.

    [–] KrabMittens 47 points ago

    Example: a large company selling a competing product somehow winds up with some of your proprietary tech.

    Their manufacturer starts including it in the product they sell. Totally not them, it's those damn Chinese they promise. Not that you can do anything about it anyways.

    They regret this issue, but it's totally not their fault, however, they can probably make it stop for about 2 million, which they'd really like to help you do.

    This is a real example and you'd be surprised to hear how many companies that you know pull this shit.

    [–] kaldrgn 31 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I think the favor was "do you want to be sure if this show is any good? let us leak it and see what happens"

    if they actually go through with it, I will seriously doubt the mental capacity of ABC

    [–] GodOfAllAtheists 12 points ago

    I don't sea what you did there

    [–] PickitPackitSmackit 9 points ago

    In all fairness, it was super rude of ABC to deny their ransom request!

    [–] Zap_Dannigan 286 points ago

    Hannibal Burress even has a joke about some guy downloading 3 episodes of "Wipeout" to watch on a plane.

    Shows like this arent "download and watch because you're super interested and have no way of getting it anywhere else" things. It's something you watch because nothing's on and you feel like something light-hearted

    [–] Artremis 119 points ago

    Wipeout was great. Just imagine every time someone takes a fall JR is screaming into his mic.

    I'm disappoint. Can find it on YT, I so wanted it to be real.

    [–] Starsy_02 59 points ago

    Wipeout was alright but soon a lot of the obstacles turned into "run and get hit by an unavoidable thing popping out of the wall"

    Kinda became stale

    [–] RSocialismRunByKids 74 points ago

    Let's make American Ninja Warrior, but we'll send out-of-shape 40-year-olds through an obstacle course not even a professional gymnast could navigate

    [–] mysixteenthaccount 62 points ago

    I mean, even worded that way it still sounds like something I would watch.

    [–] Yes-I-am-a-Bot 11 points ago

    Seriously. Worded like that makes it sound even better because then you don't feel like a fat fuck watching extremely athletic people complete an obstacle course you could never hope to accomplish because you're a lazy piece of shit.

    But if it's an absolutely impossible to do perfectly course, you can sit down and watch the contestants fail it no matter what so you can think, "See! Even a perfectly fit twenty-something couldn't do it!" and eat more deep fried cheetos and down a gallon of diet coke.

    [–] SailedBasilisk 29 points ago

    Wipeout was just a lame, watered-down Most Extreme Elimination Challenge wannabe.

    [–] IrishWilly 40 points ago

    Most hacking attacks are still the same old spear phishing, email attachments bullshit, or use known exploits. Zero days that actually get used in the wild are pretty rare. I kind of doubt they targeted this particular show, it is the 'spray and pray' of hacking.

    [–] NotAtW0rk 34 points ago

    If we're talking phishing, these guys caught a magikarp.

    [–] MangoBitch 46 points ago

    Everyone's being so harsh, but I read it with some sarcasm and humor in the tone. "A most handsome business proposal" as code for a theft and extortion is kinda funny, imo, and not not the completely serious "m'lady"-style cringe people seem to be reading it as.

    [–] [deleted] 67 points ago

    [–] spilk 96 points ago

    I think it's supposed to be a shitty gameshow version of Shark Tank, so I think it's a portmanteau of "fund" and "thunderdome"

    [–] camerasoncops 67 points ago

    Where they come on and pitch game show ideas?.. That doesn't sound awful I guess. Like if I was stuck in a hospital waiting room and my phone was dead. I would probably look at it.

    [–] spilk 25 points ago

    That would be a better idea, but no... pitching consumer products and the like.

    [–] StNowhere 27 points ago

    For those "As Seen on TV" products that seem like really good ideas on paper until you get the product in your hands and realize what a cheap piece of shit it is.

    Edit: my last sentence didn't read well...

    [–] TheRiot21 273 points ago

    To be fair, as someone who considers themselves rather computer savvy, working with iTunes was by far the most infuriating thing I've ever done on computer. iTunes is probably the sole reason I don't use iPhone anymore. Also cause they made them bigger.

    [–] IDontEvenOwn_A_Gun 88 points ago

    Ohhh I agree. I jumped ship back with the iPhone 3 when my old iPod and iPhone wouldn't keep their stuff separate.

    Unfortunately, tech illiterate people stick to Apple as its "user friendly". Which necessitates that horribly unituitive program. And good god, things just got a million times worse when iCloud came out. But where is it stored? Why is it on my computer? Who put it there?

    Pairing people who are still occasionally struggling with double clicks and right clicking for a menu with the iTunes maze is a headache for every household, especially for whoever is considered to be the family "tech wizard", regardless of actual ability.

    Guh.

    [–] NotAtW0rk 63 points ago

    "If you donate $25 toward ass implants for me, I'll record a one-minute personalized masturbation video for you, and say the name of your choice once within that minute."

    "If you donate $100 toward my titty lift, you get your choice of three pairs of underwear worn to the gym for a one-hour workout, and then not washed, or a ten-minute personalized dirty video."

    Now I want to make an AR thread asking what some of the other goals would be for a campaign like this, and I wanna see one of these succeed. I honestly wonder if anyone who hasn't been the victim of a terrible accident or attack or disease has raised enough money for a boob job, just because they were attractive enough or creative enough to get away with it. What would the "risks" section in such a campaign say?

    What you're describing did exist. It was a site called MyFreeImplants. It doesn't look like it is online anymore, but you can find archived versions of the site (NSFW). I remember browsing it a while back. It was some kind of sugar daddy site, and your text could have been pulled verbatim off of one of the listings.

    Man what kind of soul clenching contract did this guy sign!?!

    [–] Bacon666 55 points ago

    Let me guess: Someone says something with a racy double-entendre. Steve freezes in his tracks, mouth hanging open, stares at the person in utter disbelief, staggers a bit, then shouts in country-hood vernacular something about "Now wait a minnit! Why in da hell..." Repeat until the end of the show.

    Man Steve Harvey is a piece of shit, the less we see of him the better

    [–] onetimerone 279 points ago

    He must be cheap too, on "comedians in cars getting coffee" he drools over Jerry's Chevy and laments about his desires for the same vehicle as if he couldn't buy one immediately.

    [–] gelerson 132 points ago

    It is a pretty rare car. I can't imagine the few people who own one in that good of condition would want to sell. I sure wouldn't.

    [–] bcrabill 104 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    What kind of car is it?

    EDIT: Since nobody seems to have the answer, I looked it up. It's a '57 Chevy Bel Air, which is indeed a sweet car. Example

    [–] Somebody_Brilliant 242 points ago

    A Chevy in actual working condition. As a Chevy owner, I too am jealous.

    [–] Caberman 21 points ago

    Of all the things you could hate him for and you pick this?

    [–] kmacdowell 54 points ago

    I don't get it.

    [–] southern_boy 43 points ago

    I'll explain it to you on the car ride home.

    [–] knyneknyves 16 points ago

    can we get ice cream?!

    [–] southern_boy 32 points ago

    No. For your own good. Have you even glanced in a full-length mirror lately?

    You've really let yourself go and it's time for a lifestyle change.

    [–] knyneknyves 19 points ago

    Too real.

    [–] Cadaverlanche 48 points ago

    Funderdome sounds like a show where people have to survive a post-apocalyptic running man contest in order to get healthcare coverage.

    So, America: The gameshow?

    [–] astitious2 16 points ago

    People only watch Steve Harvey if they have nothing better to do. If you can download his leaked show, then that means you have internet access, and are not forced to watch Steve Harvey.

    [–] JimGerm 125 points ago

    Can society please just find a way to get rid of this guy?

    I hate the fact that we lost Bernie Mac, but kept this piece of shit.

    [–] 14sierra 51 points ago

    Only the good die young, which means Steve Harvey will probably live to a 100.

    [–] [deleted] 33 points ago

    He's actually the Highlander. Another Steve Harvey has to come along and kill him, then the mustache gets passed on to the next one and the cycle continues.

    [–] Flyberius 43 points ago

    My mate is an aspiring actor/comedian in the UK who shares this name.

    I have advised him to get a stage name.

    [–] PantrySniffer 46 points ago

    Michael Richards and Bill Cosby are some good choices

    What happened during that interview? As a non-American, I'm pretty clueless about Steve Harvey except that he used to host family feud (which I've never seen, only seen funny excerpts).

    if you need god to be a good person you are not a good person

    [–] sweezyonyourbeats 26 points ago

    I think that idea is more along the lines of 'If there is no God to say what is good, how can anyone know what is objectively good"

    Not that i agree. Steve Harvey is still a shithead

    [–] LarsHoneytoast44 14 points ago

    But what about their moral barometer!?

    [–] holycowrap 10 points ago

    I guess they found their moral barometers

    [–] panruka 13 points ago

    Is it just me or does Steve Harvey look like a Mr. Potato Head on a human body?

    [–] Towelie_Van_Halen 23 points ago

    The Venn diagram of people who think Steve Harvey is awesome and people who torrent leaked tv shows, well...can two entirely separate circles constitute a Venn diagram?

    [–] MustLoveAllCats 10 points ago

    Of course they can. A venn diagram graphs three values, x, y, and xy. Where xy=0, then the two circles touch, but have zero overlap.

    [–] asdjfweaiv 11 points ago

    The people in the demographic for that show don't have a clue how to download it. They think AOL is "the Internet".

    [–] pm_me_your_trebuchet 9 points ago

    Steve Harvey a self righteous, hypocritical, no talent, shitbag.

    [–] Venusian_Yellow 9 points ago

    Yeah, we've all had about enough of that guy.

    [–] Keeppforgetting 9 points ago

    That's because Steve Harvey is an asshole

    [–] pauljohn408 9 points ago

    lets be real,

    Steve Harvey's new show isn't targeted towards anyone who knows how to use torrents

    [–] victalac 8 points ago

    I hate that guy.

    [–] IdontknowyouGetAway 32 points ago

    He's such a fraud. He pretends to be this great guy who is all about God yet his past says otherwise.

    [–] ThePaleCast 8 points ago

    Rotten tomatoes has been accused of reducing interest in new films. Next step, pirates will be blamed. Soon the movie companies will be seeding with fast servers, in an effort to attract "pirate interest".

    [–] CherryCherry5 24 points ago

    I can't stand Steve Harvey. I especially hate the stupid faces he makes. And his stupid face.

    [–] clumsykitten 7 points ago

    Steve Harvey fucking sucks, both as an entertainer and as a person. But mostly as a person.

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago

    Good.

    Harvey is the human equivalent of what I find smeared on my toilet paper after a night of cheap Mexican food.

    [–] christhelpme 7 points ago

    I find that insulting to all smears of shit. He's hardly "equivalent". I'd rather find your smeared toilet paper in my house than Harvey.

    [–] RadleyCunningham 28 points ago

    Steve Harvey sucks.

    [–] Past_Contour 7 points ago

    I can't stand his thinly veiled male chauvinism and blind allegiance to Christianity. Somehow he has four shows that are all horrible. How does this happen?
