Last week, The Onion came up with a great idea for a website: A "decoy website" that "lure[s] moronic Internet commenters away from all other websites." Here's a taste:
According to sources, Outkube boasts thousands of articles and forums carefully crafted to draw in dim-witted web users and effectively quarantine obtuse, uninformed comments on topics such as gay rights, Ryan Gosling, the threat of Sharia law in the U.S., health care reform, whether Kobe is better than LeBron, Jewish control of the government and media, the New York Jets, the Second Amendment, and professional wrestler John Cena.
Now, Outkube is real. It's packed with all kinds of troll bait:
Don’t you think it’s time we knock it off with the guns already? Just get rid of them. Make them illegal. What’s the point? The only people who use guns are criminals and they need to be put in jail before they hurt somebody, or before their kids find their guns and shoot each other with them.
Just watched this video and it made me cry. I don’t think I have to tell you guys just how amazing Justin Bieber is, but in case you aren’t a Belieber then watch it, below. I think it’s obvious to any sane person he’s the most underrated performer we have today.
The comments are perfect, too: Exactly as even-handed, intelligent, and pleasant as you would expect.
