Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

Fake nuns with fake Anthrax, real vampires, UN conspiranoia, hateful lies about hate speech, and Bigfoot's disgusting ancestry After years of top-secret lab work, Dr. Melba Ketchum has announced the results of her DNA analysis of alleged Bigfoot hair and tissue samples (including, perhaps, the "Bigfoot steak" that was central to the Sierra Kills hoax)....

Fake Teens Part II: Brian MacKinnon and Other Fake Students

Close, but no degreeLike the career criminal James Hogue, Brian MacKinnon of Scotland tried to recapture lost opportunities by impersonating a high school student.
