In my many years of relying on The Weekly World News to bring me the stories others fear to report — “Boxer knocks opponent into last century,” “Couple fall in love when they meet in tornado,” “Carpal tuna syndrome” — I was distressed to read a small-print notification on the bottom of page two:
Weekly World News articles are drawn from different sources and most are fictitious. Weekly World News uses invented names in many of its stories, except in cases where public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental. The reader should suspend belief for the sake of enjoyment.
