Snopes Debunked After FBI Raid

The Snopers were led away by an FBI SWAT team after the intense shootout

LOS ANGELES – CA – Snopes.com the Urban Legend reference website was raided by the FBI in a massive operation yesterday.

The Urban Legend website that sets to debunk many internet stories was yesterday raided by thousands of FBI agents in a dawn swoop that took the owners by surprise.

The offices for Snopes were housed in a disused warehouse near La Cienega and their location moved every week for the past few years.

“We could not trace where the Snopes people held their servers because they would move them every week. It is very hard for law enforcement to track down and bring to justice such sites,” Lieutenant Bill Rapaport told the Daily Squib.

Snopes who have claimed to be the upholders of all truth on the internet are actually a bunch of hoaxers who operate out of disused warehouses. It seems that they played on the fact that most Americans have to have everything explained to them and have no understanding of pathos or rhetoric. Snopes.com has been fooling American internet users for years and exploiting the premise that many of the population are not able to establish fiction from fact.

One distraught web user told the Daily Squib: “I was reading Snopes and the stories I read I assumed were debunked fake stories, but instead they were true stories and I frankly feel slightly cheated.”

Sniper Snoper

The owners of the offending website were marched away by a troupe of FBI agents after a protracted gunfight that lasted all of 14 hours. The Snopers even had a sniper rifle and pinned the FBI agents down in their vehicles for two hours. The Snoper gunfire from automatic machine guns then lit the whole neighbourhood up ending in a climax of TNT sticks being lobbed at the hapless agents.

The arrests were the result of a stakeout lasting two weeks and utilising state of the art aerial surveillance drones borrowed from the LAPD.

Chief of Police Dan Arbuthnot III Esq. for La Cienega PDA had this to say today: “We got ’em. It was hard but finally we got these Snopers for good, they won’t be out there on the internet claiming to be talking the truth with their propaganda lies. Snope my ass! William Faulkner sure has a lot to answer for.”

  • Barabra’s hairy slime hole

    Snopes are the maggot droppings of the internet. I would like to see those two losers who run it personally waterboarded by Dick Cheney.

  • trapster

    Americans just don’t get the truth of satire especially British humour. Perhaps the Snopes people will write up a suitable rebuttal for this story because they do not understand it.

  • THE TRUTH

    Snopes Owners, Barbara and David P. Mikkelson are a bunch of leftie leaning Mormon cultists who are not upholders of truth but are funded by Soros AND oBAMA. Fvck them and that fat ugly cvnt Barbara with her lil faggot boy David. I have never seen such a grotesque POS. Snopes is ruining the freedom of the internet fvck them 1000 curses on theyre heads.

    Shocking! To think how I’ve been taken in all these years, ignoring warnings about space alien attacks, the emasculation virus that could have turned my hard drive into a 3.5 inch floppy, and the listening devices that Homeland Security put in my TV.

    I was almost inclined not to take this story seriously, since I saw a John McCain link on the page and Johnny Mack is such a big joke. But then I realized that serious journalism like this has to make a profit, and those pay-per-clicks add up!

  • Leitha

    How dare them take advantage of avid, but gullible readers like me. To think, I’ve been blindly deleting emails warning me about virusus, offering to enlarge my husband’s, uhum, member, and that poor guy held captive with $20 million dollars in Ghana. I wonder what became of him. He’s probably dead. If I had only drained my savings to get him to America . Think goodness the government knows what’s best for us idiots.

  • ALAN

    I WAS A SUCKER I HAVE BEEN AVIDLY READING SNOPES.COM FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS. I HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN BY THEM. I FELL ANGRY AND FOOLISH. JUST TO THINK OF ALL THE WARNINGS ABOUT GANG INITIATIONS AND LOST CHILDREN I HAVE IGNORED. LIVE MAY HAVE BEEN LOST. THIS HAS BEEN VERY IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR ONNTHE PART OF SNOPE STAFFERS. THANK GOD THE FBI FINALLY GOT THEM.

    Servers work thought most land lines so it would have been easy to find snope throught the phone company. How do I know this I work for a phone company and I know where most servers work out of. This didn’t have me fooled at all. Try harder next year.

  • Greg

    I knew they were lying. Thank goodness for the FBI.

    Now, where did I put that email about the $15 million in a bank in Zimbabwe in my name…?
