Dihydrogen monoxide is a great hoax because they even have some university sites devoted to it.

Librarians,
Do any of you have great hoax websites to help teach website information evaluation?  I have used the "Northwest Tree Octopus" and the "Tinfoil Beanies".  I have also used the Genome Test where they put their thumbs on the computer to be tested.  I am looking for a new site for juniors and seniors.
Thank you,
Sherry Paxton
