Fake BuzzFeed Headline Generator

OMG! BuzzFeed Sucks.

It’s arguable that no site on the Internet is more actively evil than BuzzFeed.com. One of BuzzFeed’s REAL Headlines was “13 Potatoes That Look Like Channing Tatum.”  It was literally 13 pictures of potatoes next to pictures of Channing’s face.

It was shared on Facebook 10,000 times.

I considered writing an article called “55 Ways BuzzFeed is Using Kitten Photos to Destroy the World” and filling it with super obvious statements stretched into repetitive lists, featuring stolen content and chock full of clicking opportunities that target demographic groups I can then exploit for advertising dollars… but I don’t have the attention span for that sort of nonsense anymore.

Instead, I’ve created a Fake BuzzFeed Headline Generator! Whee!!

 

Share your Fake BuzzFeed Headlines below to be added into the generator!

 

Special thanks to my programmer dude, Norm, for programming the functionality and Molly for getting my headlines rolling!

    I think the 2nd one is a particularly insightful commentary on SEO headline generation in general. 🙂

    I love it. I was actually thinking of doing this myself but you beat me to it and did a far better job. Brava.

    You should make a fake twitter account that randomly tweets these article titles. I would follow it.

      Hm. I can’t bear the thought of having another account (especially starting one from scratch!) but I probably should tweet one of these a day. Thank you for pointing that out!
