"Oddly Enough News" (Meta MLP)

Can't get enough of the randomly amusing things that newpapers print as filler that sound like they should be in a tabloid except for the fact they apparently happened ("Church Names Patron Saint of Tax Police", "FAA Clears Airline in Flying Pig Debacle", "Jail Operates Pizza Home Delivery Service", etc.)? Well, Reuters seems to have a service for this and Yahoo dumps them all into a section called "Oddly Enough News".

Essentially, it's Slashdot-style "quickies", but daily and more mainstream. Still amusing though.
