BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, England-- Great Britain became the 51st State of the United States of America as the official Declaration of Dependence was signed by Senator David Cameron this morning — completing the Revolution of 1776.

British statesmen ejected tea (and Harman) into a marina, and decamped to Burger King for a Double Whopper and banana milkshake. Full story»


Solar Impulse 2
HONOLULU, Hawaii -- A solar-powered airplane is due to land here Friday in a record-setting, around-the-world flight that promises to change the face of aviation.

The plane spends the daytime just above Earth's atmosphere to recharge its solar batteries, as the pilots steer by synchronized leaning. At night, it descends to 30 feet to save energy, and to try for boosts from chimneys, smokestacks, and semi-trailers on expressways. Full story»

Drivers
SILVERSTONE, England -- Formula One has been asked to kill more drivers live on television as of next year.

Bloodthirsty fans are leaving the sport in droves to watch more exhilarating things, such as chess and water evaporating. Full story»

HOLLYWOOD -- The actor who portrayed Mr. Sulu has discovered a new, alien life form.

Mr. Sulu concluded that dissenting Justice Clarence Thomas was not a legitimate African American but a "clown in blackface" — a "First Contact" with an alien species that would be Mr. Sulu's first without the assistance of Captain Kirk. Full story»

Gyros
LONDON -- Tourists going on holiday to Greece should take enough gyros to cover the entire trip, said Chancellor George Osborne.

“With Greece’s financial crisis, tourists may find themselves in the market and unable to recognize anything. Fortunately, most British supermarkets have a range of very photogenic moussakas, kleftico and souvlaki that can be photographed cold for posting on Facebook.” Full story»



Instructions for {{Lead articles}} (Edit them) (Return to the Front Page):

  • arrangePlease use this properly!--Indicates the article's layout on the Front Page:
    • lead One-across (the article in the "1-spot")
    • left Of the pairs of side-by-side articles, the article on the left side
    • right Of the pairs of side-by-side articles, the article on the right side
  • image — The image name (omit File:). There should always be an image, but if you leave this blank, the null image Spacer.gif will be used
  • dept — An optional "department" legend that will appear centered above the headline. Use them only in the 1-Spot; in the side-by-side leads (2- through 5-Spots), these graphics mess up rendering on smaller screens. Lowercase letters will become small capitals, but they won't look very good. Typical "departments" are:
    • BREAKING NEWS or URGENT for stories that either are relevant to big real-world news, or are not
    • EXCLUSIVE for "exclusive interviews," especially when they are exclusive because we're interviewing ourselves
    • PANIC in the SKIES — prized by all journalists, especially if it should have been the Happiest Day of the Year
    • NAVEL-GAZING for UnNews articles that revolve around UnNews
    • FEATURE for articles that are featured on the Uncyclopedia main page
    • ORIGINAL for stories with {{Original}} instead of real sources
    • EDITORIAL for stories tagged as UnNews Editorials
    • COLUMN for stories tagged as UnNews Columns
  • title — The page name (omit UnNews:); that is, the headline
  • short_titleOptional — If the page name is too long or doesn't look like a headline, provide the desired headline here.
  • summary — The first sentence or two of the story. If you can write a funnier lead by pulling stuff from throughout the story, that would be funnier.

Important notes:

  • If you put vertical space between the calls to {{Lead article}}, comment them out, or space will be output that will throw off the relation between articles.
  • If not using dept, set it to none. If not using short_title, turn the whole line into a comment: <!-- short_title= -->. To put it back into service, just remove the special characters. Don't remove the lines completely; that makes it harder for the next editor to see the correct form to follow.
