January 30, 2009

Monday morning, a prankster in Austin hacked into two construction street signs, to warn morning commuters of an apparent zombie invasion. Hilarious, major props to whoever pulled this on off.  You can also find instructions on how to do this yourself via the interwebs.  For the record, we at Deviant Decorum do not recommend clicking on this LINK to find out how to DIY this funny funny prank.  It is unsafe, illegal and although funny, and we do not endorse hacking into city construction signs, eventhough it is fairly easy and again funny, do not click look at the instructions at this LINK.

NYC HOAX // FAKE NEW YORK TIMES DISTRIBUTED BY PRANKSTERS

November 12, 2008

This morning I was given a free New York Times with the headline “IRAQ WAR ENDS”.  The paper is dated July 4th, 2009 and in the top left corner the statement, “All the news we hope to print”. This elaborate prank is hitting the busy subway stations of New York this morning and early rumors attribute this elaborate hoax to THE YES MEN, a liberal prank group, who even set up a NY Times mimic website with the stories and links to other liberal organizations.  The 15 page paper is filled with articles and ads all pushing towards a utopian world where war has ended, oil companies are pushing for environmental causes, universal healthcare and much more.  The New York Times has a disclaimer already posted with more information on the hoax that can be found here. An official Times spokesman said, “This is obviously a fake issue of The Times. We are in the process of finding out more about it.”
