Hoaxes and pranks
And speaking of people who've been thrown into the tank, as it were, one newbie engineer found himself at the barrel end of an elaborate hoax. Unfortunately, his purchase from BAE err.. tanked, else he'd have no worries about fending off bad drivers on the motorways, ever. Of course, he'd have a hefty fuel bill for his daily commute too.
And on the subject of non quotations and jokes, please please tell me that this is a joke. It couldn't be serious. Could it ? Miaow in your replies via comments.
