To be fair to Reuters, they didn't reach out asking if the story is true.

They asked if the images were "created" by the BB team. They clearly were seeking permission to use them and wanted to know who the creator was...

Then why mention anything about their article not having a satirical disclaimer?
Doesn't seem obvious to me

They didn't mention the article itself not having a disclaimer. They're addressing the article (presumably its headline and image)
being shared as if it was a real headline in posts without any link to the article (so there's no connection you can follow to the
Bee in those posts). The sender was presumably following a policy about verifying original image sources.

Re: the second one - guess they don't know what it is like to have lots of kids to take care of, so by the time you can get the food from the microwave, you have to turn it on again first.
