A real news story from Yahoo:
Look at the bullets that the woman is holding.
Now read the caption:
An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City.(AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)
The only way those two bullets hit anything is if someone threw them or launched them from a slingshot. They’re still pristine, still in their shells. And whoever wrote the caption obviously doesn’t know enough about firearms to know that. Either that, or as the tipster who sent this to me says, they’re actively helping create negative media stories against the US.
A fake made up joke news story:
Fake, But Tear-Jerking
I smell a Pulitzer.
The caption reads:
A Baghdad area puppy shows a hand grenade, recently tossed through the window of this Sadr City animal shelter, killing dozens of adorable puppies and kittens and demolishing the building when it detonated.
(A magic grenade that doesn't need its pin pulled to explode and can be used over and over. Just like those magic bullets in the real story above!)
