I heard about this hoax on a Los Angeles radio station. I couldn't stop laughing. "Famed Hollywood Personality & Prankster" Rory Emerald has been hoodwinking the media for years. Finding the original car from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" in Iowa City, Iowa was funny too. I wonder if Alex Boese and Rory Emerald are friends?Posted by Jason Silbersack in Los Angeles on Thu Jan 24, 2008 at 11:33 PM
Where is Rory Emerald these days? I liked reading about him in the newspaper. He's very funny!Posted by ♥ Cherilyn ♥ in Bruxelles on Thu Oct 08, 2009 at 10:42 PM
