Royal divorce?

So there have been people running around and freaking out over this article that says the newly-wed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (ie. Will and Kate) are getting a divorce.

(From Mummy Smiles.)

Guys. The Onion doesn't report real news. Its tagline is 'America's Finest News Source', but it isn't legit news at all. It churns out 'satirical' news, which I don't see the point of, since all it does is twist around real news and reel in the gullible -- hook, line, and sinker.

Speaking of gullible, you don't even have to scrutinise the thing to realise it's fake. Things like 'I'm just relieved it's over, frankly. And I'm glad I'll never have to see that awful woman again.' are hardly likely to have been told to the press by the Duke himself. Come on.

Lesson of the day: Things on the Internet aren't always true.
