SoylentNews is people

from the I-for-one-welcome-our-new-muffiny-overlords dept.
Effectively immediately, the corn muffin in the staff refrigerator has succeeded in getting NCommander to sell out for the mindbogging huge sum of one million Vietnamese Dong. Deciding that allowing the community to decide on issues is stupid, our new muffiny overlord has renamed the site "SoylentMuffins". The muffin has been quoted that it plans to change the world, and while a manifesto is yet to be written, it unveiled its new slogan of "SoylentMuffins are made from people!", and that it hopes the community follows, in its own words, "ridding the planet of the human race".

I for one am excited to follow such a visionary pastry in its attempt at world domination!

The Bacon Eaters of ## were unavailable to comment at this time on this shocking turn of events , but we'll update this story once we've heard from them.

    Well, you've "got it" better than Slashdot ever did, but an April Fool should be at least momentarily believable, and should preferably arouse fear and/or rage in the reader.

    If there's not at least a 10% doubt over which of the stories is the fake one, you're doing it wrong.

    There may be something like this in the queue like that :-). This was just a way to have a bit of fun from the stress of running this site, and perhaps get a laugh or two out of people. I don't personally love trying to figure out which stories are real or fake.

    Wait, you are saying this is not an authentic news post? AFTER i PLEDGED MY FEALTY??? Oh, darn. How am I going to explain this to my previous overlords? They will not take it kindly that I threw them off so lightly, especially for muffin overlords! I am going to blame N_commander, because of the the dong thing. My only way out that I a can see. Sorry, all.
