SNOPES FACT CHECK: A Millennial Man DID NOT Sell His Testicles for Bernie Sanders
QUESTION OF THE DAY: What do you think is worse? Snopes "fact checking" a clearly satirical article? Or that there people who need satirical articles fact checked? Or, bonus, that it's believable a Millennial man would sell his testicles to raise money for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign? Those are your three options. I honestly don't know what the worst answer is.
Because we've been down this road before (see Satire Website Babylon Bee is Being Marked as Fake News on Facebook and Snopes “Fact” Checks Babylon Bee’s Cosby/Planned Parenthood Joke). But still, Snopes keeps coming back for more...

This was not a genuine news story, as the NPC Daily is a satirical website that does not publish factual items. A disclaimer on the website’s “About” page states that “NPC Daily is a satire site, providing political and cultural commentary with wanton sarcasm.
The NPC Daily. Snopes "fact" checked something called the NPC Daily.
I'd like to think Snopes did this as a joke. But most likely, the leftists working there all think memes are why 63 million Americans are why Donald Trump got elected. Snopes has to tell you a man did NOT sell his testicles to support Bernie because you're too stupid to figure it out yourself.
Not that I don't know a few people who might fall for a story like this. But that's hardly the issue here. The real issue is some people believe there's a market for human testicles. What would a pair of fuzzies go for, anyway? Surely a soft pair from a Sanders supporter wouldn't get you more than a few bucks, right? What, pray tell, is the intended purpose of snipped balls? Curious minds want to know.
