This is a thread for Fake, Made-Up Faux News.


SPOILER WARNING: This Thread could be filled with Jokes, private or not.


Anyway, let's start with mine, for example:


Someone named Timothy "Timbox" McKenzie, along with Warner Bros. Pictures, Twentieth Century-Fox, Universal Pictures, Legendary Pictures, Cartoon Network and New Regency Enterprises, are finally and are apparently be making a live action/animated movie, albeit a serious epic, based off of characters from two of Cartoon Network(CN)'s most popular classic shows, Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls, according to Ain't It Cool News. The project, currently titled Dexter's Odyssey, would contain of a mixture of live action footage, 2D traditional animation, CGI, and even special/visual Effects both old and new (with the Dexter's Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls characters being brought to life using 2D traditional animation techniques, rather than rely on CG or on human actors, and in a hand drawn animation style that closely resemble both the older 1996-1998 episodes of Dexter's Laboratory and the original pre-Movie seasons of the Powerpuff Girls TV Show), and, as mandated by Timothy McKenzie's edict, it would not be just in 3-D all the way; one-third of the project would be shot using high definition digital 2D video and another one-third should be shot using 15/70 mm IMAX proprietary film camera systems from IMAX Corporation.

The plot at this point is set 

"in the mythical lands of "Timboxia" (which is a richly imagined, mythic, highly technological prehistoric world populated with humans, cartoon characters (or, "toona'kaiya", which means, animated (car'toon') being), dinosaurs, and other strange creatures), 10,000 years ago".

and will find

"Dee Dee Zarus' girly friends, Lee Lee and Mee Mee, coming over for a sleepover."

It will also find 

"Dee Dee's brother, Dexter Odysseus Zarus, trying to learn about them and their activities. Fortunately, Dexter finally finds love in the form of one of Dee Dee's friends, Lee Lee (He did so without disgracing Dee Dee, Mee Mee, Dexter's mom and dad with no names, and everyone else in his community and neighborhood), discovering that girls like Dee Dee, Lee Lee, and Mee Mee, are not always enemies, rivals, or pests anymore."

 "But Lee Lee has a secret--she was hiding in Dexter's neighborhood since she was a newborn baby to avoid capture from the forces of evil. And she's no ordinary girl who loves ballet or any cutesy stuff and toys. She is the legendary 'Princess of Shangara' (an Far East Asia-inspired realm), made up by some soldiers in the armies of good, many thousands of years ago and have ever since been told through myth, legend, rumors, and even speculation. The forces of evil were defeated then, but according to that ancient prophecy, Lee Lee is destined to end the reign of their evil leader, the malevolent Dark Lord, Mandark, therefore saving the world from being plunged by Mandark into an endless night of apocalyptic evil. Lee Lee and Dexter still shows their love for each other, even without realizing that Mandark the Dark Lord has discovered their romantic relationship (and finds out that Dexter is courting Lee Lee, the girl and the so-called 'Princess of Shangara' that Mandark fears above anyone else), and is planning to really conquer and enslave the forces of good once and or all, by reaching the community that includes Dexter's house and top-secret laboratory."

"When they learn what's at stake, everyone (including Dexter's teacher, Mr. Luvinsky, Dexter's mom and dad, and even his friend Douglas Mordechai III) in Dexter's neighborhood instructs Dexter, Dee Dee, Lee Lee, and Mee Mee to leave the suburbs for their own safety. But Mandark's forces (such as Strong Borgs) as well as predatory dinosaurs (like T-Rexes, Raptors, and even a Spinosaurus straight out of Jurassic Park III) are hot on Dexter, Dee Dee, Lee Lee, and Mee Mee's trail and pursue them mercilessly. However, Dexter, Dee Dee, Lee Lee, and Mee Mee form a band of just four cartoon kids (including what's usually a loud little redhead and what's usually a stupid bean pole blonde) tasked with the seemingly impossible goal of fulfilling Lee Lee's destiny once and for all, which is to destroy the Dark Lord Mandark and his powers. But in order to do so, Dexter, Dee Dee, Lee Lee, and Mee Mee will have to travel across the lands of Timboxia to the volcanic fires of Mount Nostradamus where Mandark was originally born and made...straight into the very heart of Evil itself!"

The Dexter's Odyssey project is, for the time being, without a release date, but it could be the most ambitious film project ever undertaken since James Cameron's AVATAR and Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

So, can you post any other example of fake, made-up and faux news?
