Is the Will Ferrell/Blacksburg Story True?

The source in question is known for comedy and satire.

While reading my twitter feed this morning, I noticed an unusual story involving Will Ferrell, and a stop in Blacksburg. I love Will Ferrell. I love Blacksbsburg. I love lamp. (That’s an Anchorman reference) I did a bit of snooping, and it seems the “source” on this is a comedy/satire website. It’s not an actual news organization. It looks pretty legit, with a fancy logo and all that. Here is the disclaimer at

That was disheartening, but I wanted to believe. I couldn’t find any secondary sources for the report. I have seen Ferrell on the Dan Patrick show many times, and the way the article was written sort of sounded like him. It was convincing. If there are any witnesses out there in Gobbler Country hit us up!
