    Neither is Australia. Emus are doubly unreal!

    This is veering into slightly dangerous territory because there are now people who genuinely believe that birds aren't real.

    This is happening with increased regularity. Certain online communities known for trolling have jokingly promoted things or appreciated them ironically (like the "OK symbol" being code for white supremacy.) Then others show up who aren't in on the joke and they take it seriously. And then it spreads until it's run by people who had no idea the original wasn't genuine. See also: Bronies and QAnon (not equating any those things but they all had their start in a similar way.)

    Gee - maybe we need a Gov't department to shut nutty movements down? :)
    I remember the "S.S. Dept." (Silly Stuff) in the police station, in Dick Tracy comics, when I was a kid. People reported unbelievable stuff, they were directed there. Maybe a comeback?
