New York Times accidentally publishes story about watermelons on Mars
Yeah, nah, get your tinfoil hats on, folks, because there’s some serious s**t going down right now. In a total blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment of complete f**kery at the New York Times, a pretty f**ken suspicious article about intergalactic food sources was shared online before being unceremoniously yanked from the internet. That article: watermelons on the moon.
That’s right, ya big bloody bewdiful bogans, the NYT has just let the cat out of the bag. An article claiming that “Authorities say rise of fruit aliens is to blame for glut of outer space watermelons,” was published live to the interwebs by the well-known paper just the other day.

And then, after it f**ken disappeared as quickly as it appeared in the first place, the paper claimed the article was published ‘in error’. Now, while we’re happy to admit that it might have been an honest-to-goodness mistake, we’re not so sure. After all, we spend a lot of time on the internet.
Although, if we’re honest, it probably is bulls**t. Yeah, nah, media sites have joke articles lying around in folders that can be mistakenly published with a few stray clicks of the mouse all the time.
Fortunately, though, we’ve got the full text of the article right here. Why don’t we have a squiz and see if it reveals a global conspiracy or whether it’s obviously just a load of s**t:
“Authorities say rise of fruit aliens is to blame for glut of outer space watermelons.
The FBI declined to comment on reports of watermelons raining down, but confirmed that kiwis have been intercepted. This story is terribly boring.
watermelon taste good, police say…”
Ah, f**k, this is clearly, clearly, clearly bulls**t. Yeah, nah, false alarm. Nothing to see here. Still, when the real fruit aliens come, we’ll be ready anyway. Yeah, nah, we’ll be ready.
Final thought: Yeah, we’re not sure what exactly’s gone on here, but it’s obviously something a bit bloody silly. Still, it’s a good reminder of how easy it is for bulls**t news to be published. Maybe there’s a lesson in that. Maybe…
