  1. Three things make me question the article’s credibility.

    1.) Headlines for serious articles usually don’t end in an exclamation point.

    2.) This is on the Yahoo! Movies site, specifically under supermarket tabloids. I haven’t seen Weekly World News, but it’s grouped with The National Enquirer and Star Magazine, which bring us articles about things like the 87-year-old woman who just gave birth to quadruplets after being intimate with her great grandfather’s 100-year-old corpse. OK, I made that up, but that’s the kind of stuff I always see in the checkout line at the grocery store in those two offerings. (Ahem, you know, I mean, on their covers.)

    3.) Most glaringly, near the end of the article we have “a senior White House official said the president’s top science advisors…” and surely by now it’s clear that the president has no science advisors. He’s about as interested in science as the Dalai Lama is in getting a virtual beauty makeover. I’d say have your party on schedule.

  2. To draw a comparison that some people may understand, the Weekly World News is the muggle equivalent of The Quibbler, as edited by Luna “Loony” Lovegood’s father.

    I used to read the WWN from time to time. It’s good for a laughh and good if you’re trying to keep track of the latest alien abductees, Loch Ness monster sightings and recent advances in crop circle theory. Bad if you really want to know anything!

  3. Its a great story, lots of doom and gloom, end of the world stuff, and then on the last line we get

    “The existence of this so called chaos cloud is only a theory. Americans shouldn’t panic until all the facts are in”

    Makes the story a bit pointless really
