CONFIRMED: Melbourne man was taking the media for a ride

fake, fake, fake

He took the media for a ride, and exploited our desire for quick news and lots of clicks and that was all confirmed today as “Phuc Dat Bich” posted a Facebook note outlining his prank and reasoning.  What’s most amazing is, he’s right.


He took the media for a ride, and most of them fell for it.

Funny now in retrospect, but a bit of a worry too.

Good news is, I told you so.

Oh, and Please, don’t refer to him as Joe Carr – that clearly stands for Joker.  For what it’s worth, though we may never know – I think his name is David.

    You realise this is still taking what he says as fact? Everybody’s taking this “prank admission” at face value just like his previous posts. We did not – and still don’t – know what the truth is. No “confirmation” of anything. After all, as you said, still no interviews, still no additional third-party evidence of any facts. The Internet is indeed like that.
