BuzzFeed has revolutionized the way reporters think. Yeah, there’s something depressing about that. But the listicles — a term that BuzzFeed itself forbids — are addicting, which is why stories that you may think belong on the site may turn up elsewhere.

Like a story on “20 Problems Every Tall Girl Understands.”

So which is it, BuzzFeed or BuzzFake? 

BuzzFake. This particular story appeared in HuffPost! But as it happens, BuzzFeed kind of has the emotional needs of the tall girl covered — at least 8 stories by The Mirror‘s count. HuffPost‘s “tall girl” story was tweeted over the Memorial Day weekend despite being published on May 14.
