Okay, I’m a bit behind on this story, but I just found out about this via Ars Technica. Gotta say, that Dihydrogen Monoxide in the water supply joke is so hack, but when it actually gets people, it can be pretty hilarious. I think my local DJs did it several years back. The same DJs who told people that our local Telco would be “blowing the dust” out of the phone lines and so everyone should put plastic bags on their phones.
People believed them. A lot of people.
