Web App Transforms Embarrassing Articles to NY Times Articles

You probably don’t want your boss or colleagues to know that you enjoy reading articles like “Madonna Tests Out Her MDNA Skincare Brand, Posts Selfies to Demonstrate its Amazingness” or “Old Lady’s Jam is Seriously a Lil Jon Song,” so what do you do? You use Timesify.

Timesify is a web app that transforms the crap you usually enjoy reading into a Times article. The content you actually want to read is included below a short blurb that tips you off on what the Times article is about. Just in case anyone wants to know. Now you can read all the worst things on the Internet (like god intended) without facing any of the consequences.

Be warned though: Timesify doesn’t always work right. For example, someone we know just tried to use it to read an article titled “Mariah Carey Ready to Divorce Nick Cannon Soon?” and Timesify posted the article, but not a Times headline or blurb.
