I saw it on the internet so it has to be true

A man from Waterbury in Connecticut faces divorce after his wife found out that he was not actually deaf and had been faking it for more than 62 years to avoid having to listen to her. 
According to the divorce papers, 84-year old Barry Dawson never spoke a single word in front of his 80-year old wife Dorothy during the decades they lived together.
Seems that this is making the rounds on the 'net - it's a funny story and so it's popping up all over.  The only problem?  It's not true.

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page in the link.  You'll find this:
World News Daily Report assumes all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any person, living, dead or undead, is purely a miracle.
Entirely fictional.  The site does satire.  This is pretty funny satire, but satire it remains.
