Most Flopular: Remixing the HuffPo Story Stream (Parody)

No Corporia RPG news today. Instead, as Monty Python would say, “And now for something completely different!”

If you’re a frequent visitor to the Huffington Post website, you’ve seen their ‘Most flopular00Popular’ news stories posted in a column on the right side of the page. It typically looks something like this image here:

Each story in this steam appears as with a title header above an image, with each individual story separated by a dividing line. Of course, if you’re like me and not always paying close attention to exactly where this line is, or if you accidentally scroll to just the right (or wrong) place on your screen, you’ll read the text as a footer rather than a header.

That leads to my brain creating some unexpectedly bizarre or just plain silly news stories, like:

flopular01

or

flopular02

or

flopular03

Larger images flow similarly, but aren’t as easily misread. Still, if you look at it the right way you get such highlights as:

flopular04

 

flopular05

 

flopular06

 

flopular08

 

flopular07

And so on. I specifically avoided selecting some of the more socially incorrect items, but I couldn’t resist just this next one. Apparently Brad Pitt holds a secret grudge…
