Every so often, we here at Cracked like to remind you of all the viral stories that filled your Facebook feeds and dominated your Internet chatter, in an effort to show you the other side of the coin that the media "accidentally" forgot to let you see (aka the other side of the coin where Abe Lincoln's beard is made of bullshit).
6 A High Schooler Didn't Feed Her Classmates Semen-Filled Cupcakes
Earlier this month, you might have come across this gut-wrenching headline that went viral: A high school girl had baked semen-filled cupcakes and fed them to her classmates at school.
Did she Danny Ocean a sperm bank?
According to esteemed publications including Gawker, the Mirror (which at this point we're declaring the Daily Mail's younger, more illiterate brother), and Medical Daily, the high school girl had been bullied so extensively by her peers that it drove her to the point of baking the cupcakes-that'll-make-you-fatter-than-any-other-cupcake-can-in-nine-months.
But that, of course, only applies if you read the headline and nothing else, because as is consistent with every single article reporting this story, a few paragraphs down you'll find that it was all a prank, and the only "semen" police found was actually mayonnaise. It's not that the teen girl hid the discovery of the semen and the pubic hair from the police -- it's that it was a fucking high school prank that for some reason made international headlines.
