Even Rush Limbaugh doesn't believe the bullshit that comes out of Rush Limbaugh!

On Tuesday, the right-wing radio host basically heavily implied that the severity of Hurricane Irma was being exaggerated to feed into the liberal myth of climate change.

Because why argue the conclusions when you can argue facts, right? That's the Rush trademark! The blowhard said:

"All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent, and bigger, and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it's mission accomplished, agenda advanced."

Never mind that it takes a certain kind of delusion to imply inclement weather is #FakeNews — it also takes a certain negligence. People listen to this asshole, something celeb meteorologist Al Roker was quick to point out on Twitter at the time:

Do people really believe this stuff?!

There's a viral hoax making the rounds on the Internet that just may convince some gullible consumers to destroy their new iPhone 7!

In response to Apple's infamous announcement last week that they are indeed removing the headphone jack in favor of wireless ear buds, a hack is being passed around to get the jack back.

The hoax says the headphone jack is still in the phone if you just make a simple modification. With a power tool.

It's pretty ridiculous — but apparently it has some people believing it!

Oops!

USA Today ran with a story Tuesday morning that "broke" news of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy's death.

The thing is, the 82-year-old All The Pretty Horses author is alive and well.

The newspaper took their information from a random account purporting to be a publisher, though it was an unverified prank account — and very quickly, the media outlet was forced to walk back their ill-advised "reporting."

Unfortunately for them, horror legend Bruce Campbell recognized the pic — it was a makeup test for his Starz show Ash vs. Evil Dead!

Yep, the whole thing was a hoax!

Beetlejuice 2 ISN'T Happening After All! Get The Deets On The Heartbreaking Hoax!

Filed under: Film FlickersOops!Sad SadTim BurtonNostalgia

But what if we say his name three times? Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE!

Ugh. Well that's a let-down.

On Friday, reports were circling that Tim Burton had officially signed off on Beetlejuice 2, and we were totally thrilled about it!

However, it looks like Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton won't be reprising their roles, because it turns out the news was completely fake!

Photo: Here's What Tim's ACTUALLY Working On Right Now!

The director's rep revealed that the sequel isn't in development after all!

We know this seems confusing, since the initial report featured a quote from the filmmaker himself. However, the 57-year-old's team says those comments were actually made up!

Bummer! We were so excited. Buuuuut just because it's not in development now doesn't mean a followup will never happen, right?!

We can dream anyway!
