Christian Science Monitor: Historic Hoaxes
If it weren't for the inconvenient fact that no one has a clue who I am, I'd almost feel famous, because I was interviewed not only by Wired, but also by the Christian Science Monitor, for this article. My mother always says that she could have had a son who was a doctor or a lawyer, but instead she gets a son who's a hoax expert. Well, it may not pay much, but at least I get interviewed a lot once a year, every April 1st.

I liked this article, although it could have had more modern hoaxes, or a few of your current items, particularly those by companies seeking free publicity.
