This one is a big Knope.
On Wednesday, Twitter users were surprised to see actress and “Parks and Recreation” star Amy Poehler.the name of the trend.
Twitter’s explanation to users – “People point out resemblance between arrested Florida woman and actress Amy Poehler” – implied that the story behind the trend of Poehler’s name was real.
Still, the report, which was accompanied by a photo of the Pohler lookalike, appeared to have a few, uh, holes in it:
“Miami stripper arrested for squirting vaginal fluids on police officers in self-defense,” one reads.
The story associated with the mugshot is actually false, according to Snopes.
It was written by the World News Daily Report, a satirical website. The snapshot, however, depicts an actual woman who was arrested in Houston in 2008. In real life, she was not charged with the acts described in the WNDR story.
WNDR also makes no secret that its stories are about as real as the city of Pawnee, Indiana.
A slogan under the site’s logo reads: “Where facts don’t matter.” The site also contains many disclaimers that its content is a joke. Other news featured on the site on Wednesday included “Woman gets pregnant after sex with used sex doll she ordered from eBay” and “Woman sues Samsung for $ 1.8 million after her cell phone is stuck in her vagina. ”
Basically, the site is very interested in fake news associated with female anatomy. Even the Poehler lookalike story included a pretty savage description of the Florida woman’s use of her lower regions.
“Florida tower dancer arrested in Miami after assaulting five police officers with her vagina and using it as a lethal weapon with no intent to kill,” the article begins.
Although the story is completely fabricated, people on Twitter still had a lot of fun figuring out the whole situation. To read some of these hilarious answers, just scroll down.
