Alan Abel Videos
Status: Public Service Announcement
image I just discovered a whole stash of clips of Alan Abel hoaxes on YouTube (uploaded, I assume, by his daughter, Jenny). There's Omar's School for Beggars, the fake lottery winner, Ban Breast Feeding, the mass fainting on Donahue, and many more. It's a good twenty minutes worth of entertainment. Enjoy.

Nice find, Alex! Damn, this just reminds me how much it sucks to live in a place where you can't get high-speed Internet. I wonder if Alan knows about this. I guess I'll have to tell him.

Grrr, the "fake lottery winner" video is Alan's original version with Lee Chirillo, not the one from earlier this year with ME. :( Eh, maybe I'll make the cut eventually.
