Great Hoaxes in the AARP

My mother noticed that the AARP Bulletin had a short feature about "Great Hoaxes," so she sent it to me. It's a somewhat random selection of six hoaxes, but that's no surprise. These short list-type features in magazines often seem like they choose things to list at random. The six hoaxes are:

Left-Handed Whopper (1998) --
Pierre Brassau, Monkey Artist (1964) --
The Hitler Diaries (1983) --
The Masked Marauders (1969) - wikipedia link --
Sidd Finch (1985) --
The Autobiography of Howard Hughes
