Devorise Dixon's story of finding a rodent in his three piece chicken tender meal became a national sensation.
But KFC smells a rat!
After a couple days of trying to reach Devorise to investigate his claim that he bit into a fried rat at one of their restaurants, they have decided to stop playing nice!

No, the Colonel isn't going to lead a regiment to his doorstep, but they are calling his claims a "hoax" — and they think they have the evidence to back that up!
They said in a statement:

Devorise Dixon says he sat down to eat his three piece KFC chicken tender meal when he noticed the taste was off, and the texture was tough and rubbery.
That's when he looked down and saw what he was eating… a fried rat!!!

Well, that's the story he started sharing on Sunday, along with this photo.
As the story got shared more and more, Devorise even went on a local radio show to tell his rat tale.
But we think this chicken rat is a little fishy, and here's why:

This is truly a matter of national security.
The most reputable news source in the land, The National Enquirer, has made a lot of crazy assertions in the past.

However, one such claim that they DIDN'T make was asserting that our President Barack Obama had sex with Harry Styles (despite our deepest wishes that this tryst DID happen).
The now viral front page that claims our commander in chief banged this One Direction heartthrob is (regrettably) a hoax.
However, in case you're wondering if there was any truth to this fake headline, Harry decided to break his silence and comment on these false (and fake) allegations:

It was the tweet that had EVERYBODY going crazy!
Amidst all the drama over Bill Cosby's alleged rape accusations, his former on-screen daughter, Lisa Bonet, tweeted out a cryptic message about the actor over the weekend.

It was pretty apparent the tweet in question was about her former TV dad:

Recently, a video went viral of a girl who appeared to be drunk, asking people for help on Hollywood Blvd.
In the video (which has now been made removed), men appear to try and take advantage of her, which is NOT cool, so there was a ton of backlash.

Well, it turns out the entire thing was a hoax, and the video has been removed from YouTube, but that didn't stop some of the participants from getting in trouble.

Although most of us would never, ever, ever put any Apple product (aside from maybe an actual apple) inside a microwave, a few iPhone users have been tricked into nuking their smartphones.
Pranksters over at 4Chan ran a false ad that claimed that iOS 8 had a new feature, which allowed their iPhone to gain power from microwaves.
Of course, as many people who have posted on Twitter about their attempt to recharge the device in the place that radiates your food would NOW agree, putting your iPhone into a microwave is in fact a horrendous idea.
So yeah, do not try this at home.

Talk about a mistaken case of identity!
These cleaners mistakenly identified this dead body as something fake when it was actually real!
A pair of cleaners were hired this past Thursday to clean up a house that had recently been evicted of its former tenants, and when the hired help showed up to the home in Spring Hill, Florida, they found a lot of awful stuff including a lot of dead rodents!
When they discovered a human body, later revealed to be Jeremy Witfoth, they thought the corpse was actually a mannequin and proceeded to haul the body down to a local dump!
