This one caught my attention today: New Report Shows Many U.S. Businesses Actually Just Fronts For Moneymaking Operations

When reading it, I was immediately struck by how similar this satire is to...

This weekend, Rafael LeMaitre tweeted about a new Presidential proclamation, saying:

POTUS: Impaired drivers involved in nearly 1/3 of all deaths from motor vehicle crashes in the U.S., taking almost 30 lives each day.
