Man Responsible For Olympic Ring Mishap Found Dead In Sochi, Murdered For Snafu? Putin Upset

• The Daily Currant
The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Russia was found dead today. According to local reports the body of T. Borris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds. Avdeyev was a technical specialist responsible for the Olympic Ring spectacle, which embarrassingly malfunctioned last night. Five animatronic snowflakes were supposed to transform into Olympic Rings. The first four functioned properly but the fifth snowflake failed to change shape. Although his body was badly mangled and the wounds were consistent with a struggle, so far officials say they don't suspect foul play. “Sure there were stab wounds and bruises all over the body,” admits the lead investigator on the case, “But who knows what caused them. Maybe he tripped and fell on a set of knives. Right now we’re ruling this an accidental death.

The Daily Currant is a SATIRICAL news website. Which means this story of "mysterious death" is completely fake:

To the editor:

 In this day and age where so much of the news that would've been regarded as farce even a decade ago, it becomes harder and harder to distinguish reality from parody, as indeed this story is.  Consequently, I hope you will reconsider running stories from sites such as The Daily Currant and The Onion.  It just adds to all the intellectual sewage I have to swim through to find some semblance of reality on a daily basis. 

Finally, could you please, please, please!!!!, find a way to eliminate entire web sites (not authors) from my personalized version of so I don't have to even see articles from the snarky sites listed above?

Thanks Ernie.
