Parents and other concerned Internet users went wild last week over an article about a kid's birthday party that turned out to be from a fake news site. Southend News Network is a fake news site for people in southeast England, which is like one layer of an Onion.

The fake article was about a fake mom throwing a fake birthday party for a fake kid named Alfie, asking parents of attendees to spend at least £50 on a present, which is $69.59 US.
