When Dead Big Foot Came to Houston and Five Other Hoaxes
OK. This was a bit obvious, someone did a photoshop job that morphed in an internet game of telephone that further became the Internet exclusive report that a species of super spider was threatening Texas. We'll take flying roaches any day over an Angolan Witch spider.
That Texas town that was adding sugar to its water so people would stay hydrated? Oh, right. We believed that for like zero seconds. While this hoax was the masterpiece of some dude with too much time on his hands, there clearly were people who believed this crap seriously enough to schedule a radio interview. But that's not saying much.
