Web's Top 25 Pranks and Hoaxes

Top 25 Web Hoaxes and Pranks - PC World

Yep, the classics are all here, including:
- the guy on the World Trade Centre with the jet approaching,
- Bill Gates will send you a check when you forward the email,
- the sick kid that wants to set a world record for greeting cards,
- Microsoft buys the Catholic church (and Firefox),
- Bert (from Sesame Street) hanging out with Osama bin Laden, and of course
- the Nigerian gentleman that needs your help with a wire transfer.

There are also lots of hoaxes that I hadn't heard before.
I think it's interesting that people are starting to write lists and histories of the culture and social events on the internet, rather than the history of technology and products.

Chuckles abound.
