When satire website Aviationdaily.news went live on January 8, 2019 its editorial staff had no idea their brainchild would reveal how gullible the majority of Internet users are.

Working from a cheesy lounge in a topless bar near LAX, the journalists pump out absurd stories with catchy headlines making no attempt to hide the true nature of the prose. To learn the naked truth readers merely need to click the post and they will see the entire article in its ridiculous glory on aviationdaily.news . Hiding in plain site just below every headline is the tag “Satire“. On the other hand, it is fun to watch discussion threads devolve into rancorous diatribe replete with ad hominem attacks that are the mainstay of typical online discourse especially after someone points out the subject of the argument is not even real.

Some of the greatest hits include a new phonetic alphabet where many of the names start with the appropriate letter but have the wrong sound, The Blue Angels selling rides in F-18 jets, private pilots hired to fly right seat in regional airline jets, and the magnum opus of satirical chicanery; touting the reopening of Meigs Field in Chicago.

Being called out on numerus Facebook groups and forums as “fake news” and not funny, The fine journalism of Aviationdaily.news has blatantly exposed the simple fact that virtually no one actually knows what satire is!

From the Oxford Dictionary: Satire-noun-The use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
