You know what we all need to take our minds off the heartache of the Sandy Hook tragedy? How about an eagle carrying off a human baby?
Okay, so maybe that sounds like gasoline on the fire, but don’t worry — the video is a fake. It’s a good fake, but nonetheless, la mierda no es real. The video came online last night, purporting to be an actual incident in a Canadian park (eh!), and immediately went viral as people doubtlessly went for their assault rifles (ooh irony!) to hunt every eagle-with-a-taste-for-human-flesh out of the Canadian night sky. Show us aboot where the wing-ed basterds are, Aurora Borealis!
Just as quickly though, the debunkers came out in hoards, pushing their spectacles up their noses and proclaiming, “It’s CGI… I could spot it from a mile away, even while preoccupied with my Magic: The Gathering cards or my veganism and hipster tattoos.” Bunch of a**holes, always gotta ruin the fun. The important thing is, the baby is safe. Even if it was never in any real danger because the video is fake, I am just glad to see the. baby. is. safe.
