THREAD: If you like @TheBabylonBee, you should get to know our amazing writers. I'll list them off and highlight an excellent article by each of them!
Senior Writer Frank Fleming (@IMAO_ ) is a bottomless well of weird ideas. He always says his favorite jokes are the ones that make you go, "That's so stupid!"

One of my favorite Flemings:

Creative Director Ethan Nicolle (@AXECOP) does all our good photoshops and bear jokes.

My favorite Nicolle:

If you let your kids use Scratch, be aware there are LGBT groups on there encouraging kids to explore their sexual orientation.
Scratch is a coding program and community site targeted at 8-16-year-olds, but any age can access it.
Despite targeting kids, the site has no rules against discussing sex but simply says all orientations and gender identities are welcome.

That survey @snopes shared is horrible. Did they seriously paraphrase Bee stories and ask people if they thought they were true? That's an awful way to figure out what percentage of people will believe satire.
@snopes The specific phrasing we use is designed to be humorous, to frame things as a joke, to set things up in a dry manner and then deliver a punchline. The framing is everything.
@snopes If some survey intern called me and asked "Did this person say X" I'd say, "How the heck am I supposed to know, ya cheese bag?"
