Superman Vanishes
Jeff Germann, webmaster of the Superman Museum in Metropolis, IL, writes to tell of an April Fool's Day prank he pulled in the Superman Collectors Monthly Newsletter. With a little help from Photoshop, he managed to convince quite a few people that the Superman statue standing outside the museum had been stolen. He says:
This one article resulted in more emails than any other article we posted.
Believe it or not, I am STILL receiving emails at times from people who are upset over the theft of a fifteen foot tall bronze statue, even though on the "update" link, I come clean about it being a prank.
