I know I Told You So…

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

But I did tell you so. The bigfoot “discovery” was actually a fake. The somewhat suprising turn of events though is that the hoax may cost the pranksters some big money, since they’re now getting sued. That’s what you get for playing on America’s love of big, hairy things.

Hoaxville Next Stop

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Following up on the rant I made a few hours ago about people believing in mythical creatures like we haven’t really done since the mid-ages, we have a Yeti hunt. If bigfoot just showed up dead, who’s to say we won’t just stumble upon the Yeti this week too? Maybe lochness is next?

I apologize if I sound critical, but I am.

Because We Need More Hoaxes

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

I thought I’d remind you that there are still scammers lurking about trying desperately to show you crazy monsters and big foots. I know the internet has made the spread of information amazing and crazy now, but that doesn’t mean you should go spreading lies. I feel a new mythology coming alive thanks to the miraculous ability of people to spread great forgeries faster than ever.

Oh, and just so you know, there’s a Nigerian banker trying to get a hold of you. Since he has your inheritance.

Thanks Neatorama.

Tasteless, Cruel and Yet, A Little Funny

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Taking a tip from the legendary film “I’m Gonna Get You Sucker,” the Chinese have take the goldfish out of shoes and into key chains to support the Olympics. What better way to remember the coming together of different nations in sport than a small fish destined to die in a few days? Read more on this cruel, yet strangely giggle-inducing idea here.

BTW, yes, it probably is a fake, so it’s ok to laugh…just like the bonsai kittens.
