Royal Baby Town Crier Fake!

  •  

    Ok, so while a lot of our discussions on this site only revolve around golf, I saw something this morning that received tons of attention recently.  Yes, the George the royal baby was born but more interestingly the Town Crier (you know, the old guy in the big red coat and hat in front of the hospital with the scroll announcing the birth the other day whose picture and video was plastered everywhere) is not associated with the Royals at all!  In fact, it was a prank that he pulled off!  He apparently wanted to be part of the baby process and thought of this as a fun way to not only fake out the media in front of the hospital but also all the police and officials!  In this day and age, I thought this was sort of funny he was so successful! LOL

    I had not seen that, that is hilarious.  The lengths some people go to nowadays and with social media and widespread news coverage it can be much easier to accomplish!

    I agree - Hilarious spoof! Have there been instances of hackers entering prestigious golf events on the basis of their "handicap index", while untrue, falling within the acceptable range for competition? Hasn't this happened at US Open qualifiers?
