This book is sort of a primer for Boese's constantly updated site concerned with hoaxes and other similar tomfoolery.

Took the book at meet-up. Let's see some hoaxes, then.

I went through the book reading a bit from here and there. Some of the hoaxes I have heard before, like the spaghetti harvest, war of the worlds radio program, Paul is dead and the fairy photographs. The infamous Bonsai kitten website I have seen myself (surprisingly didn't fall for it). The theories about the origins of the April Fool day were interesting.
I guess there will always be hoaxes. Unfortunately there are plenty of those who want to seriously harm others or milk innocent people dry of their money with them. Less harmful hoaxes or good April fool jokes can be entertaining though. At least if you're not the one who gets fooled big time.

Hi, sorry it took me a couple of days to get back to a computer and register this book... Now I'm here.

Thanks, this looks really fun! I have just glanced through it so I don't really know yet if it will live up to the cover, but it looks great... Exactly my thing.

And it was a nice ride out from Kallio to pick it up from a special bookcrossing box under shady trees. Limingantie is beautiful!

Thanks again!
