Kendall Ball (and I thank him) made a comment on the last article I posted asking if I knew the Lark site was purely fictional, similar to The Onion, and some of the other tongue-in-cheek sites. While I knew the information was skewed to a point to embellish certain aspects of the story, I honestly thought the articles were based on facts (even after reading their disclaimer,) but they are 100% fiction.
Please forgive my ignorance! I removed them as soon as I received the confirmation from the Lark site which is presented below:
My email to LarkNews on 8/4/06:
Editor of LarkNews Staff:
Of course many of your articles are based on satire, but I was wondering if the information itself is valid, or just based on humor from start to finish?
And the reply from the LarkNews staff on 8/6/06:
Larry, thanks for asking. The articles are purely made up. They have no basis in reality to our knowledge.
So now I sit around with egg on my face promising myself to check information a whole lot better before I toss it on a page again.
The only good thing is the fact that those weird stories are not a part of some churches, for this I'm thankful. Sorry I goofed...
