Quiz: Real Vice Headline or @Vice_Is_Hip Parody?

Rare like a three-legged unicorn, one of those actually funny parody Twitter accounts popped up today to send up the insanely valuable hip-kid bible Vice.

Truth is stranger than fiction and all that. Seriously, see if you can spot the parodies among the self-parodying.
