Funny Or Die News Flash curates the day's top stories so they're quick and easy to digest. Each story includes a headline accompanied by a looping video and a joke that satirizes the story.

The Funny Or Die News team, creators of Funny Or Die's popular topical videos and comedic commentary of real news and current events, will be overseeing all content for Funny Or Die News Flash.
"It seems like every reputable news outlet has a dedicated app. And now a non-reputable news outlet does, too," says Dan Abramson, Editor-in-Chief of Funny Or Die News.
A sampling of today's headlines include: "A recent survey found that 40% of Republicans don't believe in global warming. Ironically their rhetoric accounts for the majority of the world's hot air."
