Let me start off first by defining exactly what I mean by the words HOAX and GULLIBLE:
HOAX generally means to trick into believing or accepting as genuine something false and often preposterous — often meant to be a so-called prank, practical joke or spoof. It can also be defined as an act, document or artifact intended to deceive or defraud.
So that means that these HOAX websites are basically fake or fictitious web pages — you might even call them funny spoof sites that will try to deceive you or fool you in some way, usually all in good fun — some are more convincing than others — but not necessarily all of them.
A GULLIBLE person can easily be ‘taken in’ or ‘tricked’, ‘deceived’ or ‘duped’. They are considered to be naive and not really alert to danger or deception, largely due to the ‘lack of worldly experience’.
Over the years, a number of enterprising individuals (entrepreneurs) have come up with clever, wacky as well as eye-catching ways to market and/or promote bizarre and unusual gadgets, inventions, behaviors, ideas or maybe try to sell non-existent products to those that would be gullible enough to fall for it. A few may even try to get you to believe in some concept or theory that is non-existent or you haven’t heard before. A number of these are amusing and fun while others are just incredibly lame or stupid. A growing number of new sites tend to pop-up around April 1st… April Fool’s Day. Tons of these sites have come and gone over the years… only to resurface again every so often. However, there are a few that have had “staying power” due to a variety of reasons… viral marketing… unusual promotions… social networking… overwhelming curiosity mixed with too much free time… etc.
People have published some hilarious, bizarre and strange things on the Internet and the world wide web has become a breeding ground for hoaxes. So, with all being said, here you will find some of the more interesting and intriguing sites that I consider among the best I’ve come across on the web.
