NEW ORLEANS, LA – In yet another hoax that has ripped through that thing we call the internet, or as George W. Bush would say “internets,’ we find that the quarterback for the New Orleans Saints has gotten himself into the most terrible of terrible accidents.

It’s being reported that Brees broke both his legs in this most tragic of accidents.

Yes – It’s true. I read it on the internets.

But wait! What’s this tweet I just read from Drew Brees?

“I am fine. Not sure where the car accident story came from. It is not true. I appreciate everyone’s concern but I am ALL GOOD!”

Well, shoot. I just bought a get-well card and everything.

The fake news site that is responsible for starting the rumor and was also responsible for a number of other rumors including stories about Brees’ fellow teammates. However, if readers had scrolled to the bottom of their webpage they would have found this message:

“THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE!” it reads. “This is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes! this story was dynamically generated using a generic ‘template’ and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank ‘non-specific’ template for the purpose of entertainment.”
