Memes and w00stock

On August 10th, this post appeared on the Chive. It quickly made the rounds on twitter and facebook. After fooling a lot of people (myself included), the Chive fessed up that it was a hoax and that 'Jenny' was really a hired actress. The damage was done, so to speak, and a meme was born with people doing their own adaptation of it. Jump to today when I posted a link on facebook to my favourite version of the hoax from the guys who bring us w00tstock. My friend, Carolyn, commented that she also hopes to someday attend w00tstock and then she suggested we have some fun with wipeboards. I took that as a challenge and I rarely turn down a challenge.
