“I’d heard of the Lake Michigan monster, but never did I expect to catch it myself," said the Canadian tourist.

And he didn't catch it...because it's a fake story.

I'm fan of satire, and I think it can be hilariously done very well. To be honest, I laughed out loud at this one. Well done, World News Daily Report.

The satirical website posted the story on June 24th, and it received international coverage. Pretty obvious that it's fake, but then again, somebody believed it.
