A friend recently told me about Le Gorafi - a satirical online French newspaper of the sort that will be very familiar to British readers of The Daily Mash or American readers of The Onion. The name comes from a misspelling of Le Figaro. Here are a few recent stories that I thought were pretty funny.
Much like with those two great Anglo-Saxon publications, apparently it's not uncommon for stories in Le Gorafi to be taken seriously by foreign press outlets and re-reported as fact. And there's always someone on facebook who comments on a story saying "non c'est pas vrai !".
