False. Turns out, you're actually glad that it's out there being circulated

The rooster definitely came first. Didn't you hear the chicken complaining about how she can never get any satisfaction?

I'll stop before this gets moved to NFBSK.

Who invented Play-Doh:

Play-Doh was originally designed as a wallpaper cleaner. However, its similarity to regular modeling clay without the toxicity or mess made Play-Doh a great toy. Joe McVicker became a millionaire before his 27th birthday after re-releasing the product as a toy.

Uh, Bill, if you can't tell the difference between me and a little girl, may I suggest you never become a pediatrician.

Or a member of a boy band. The fan confusion would be especially dangerous.

Yes. But ethical though it may be, it's not legal in nine provinces, two territories or 47 states.

Yes, it is possible. Unfortunately it pales in comparison to the torture chamber reserved for extremist Islamic believers [Smile]

I'm glad you asked. In fact, reports are coming in from all over. We just got one from Bucharest this very moment. It confirms the earlier reports from Sydney and Lagos. We're still waiting for the reports from La Paz and Istanbul, but we don't expect any change.

So I think we can safely say that this is a fake story.
