Spider-Filled Beanie Babies

The latest fake news story to be mistaken for reality comes from clickhole.com. It claims that Beanie Babies made in the 90s were actually filled with thousands of spider eggs, and that those eggs are now beginning to hatch "bursting through the seams of Beanies everywhere." Syracuse.com reports that the fake story has been shared on Facebook over 58,000 times. Unlike most fake news stories, which aren't funny at all, I can actually see an element of humor in this one.

You'd have to be total idiot to even think that 15 - 25 year-old spider eggs would still be viable.
