Some Friday fun, straight from "America's Finest News Source," The Onion:

Yellowstone National Park Concerned About Competing 'Yello-Stone Natural Park' Built Right Across Street

"Civil War Enthusiasts Burn Atlanta To Ground

ATLANTA—The city of Atlanta was destroyed and 230,000 were killed Sunday when a group of overzealous Civil War buffs marched through the Georgian capital, burning it to the ground."

It was an important story in 1996.  You must've missed it.
