Enlightened ramblings of a minarchist libertarian with Objectivist tendencies

I knew Chihuahuas were just big ass rats!

Ahh, the glory of the internet. Where else (other than the mainstream press) can stories that are completely fictitious spread like wildfire to millions of people?

Take this excerpt for instance:

Among other findings, the analysis determined that the Chihuahua is actually a type of large rodent, selectively bred for centuries to resemble a canine.

I first saw this posted on Politics Cafe as a joke. Since then, however I have received multiple emails due to the dubious seven degrees of separation family in which we are all now apparently a part of.

They all seriously touted this "fact." Of course, had any of them taken the time to check out the source (as I did) they would have seen that it was all just a big joke brought to us by the Watley Review - Page Three.
